Panel discussion this Tuesday: The rise of Donald Trump and what it means

The 2016 presidential election has many Americans questioning who they want to represent them to the world. Many question if the two primary candidates can lead their country effectively. Many feel like there are questions that still need to be answered. Luckily, McKendree University can help answer some of those questions.

On Oct. 18, everyone on campus and in the surrounding area are welcome to join political science professors Dr. Brian Frederking and Dr. Ann Collins along with journalist/author Sarah Kendzior (The View from Flyover Country, The Globe and Mail, Foreign Policy) for a lively discussion about the current state of U.S. politics, the success of Donald Trump’s campaign and what it could mean for future elections. The panel discussion will be held in the Hettenhausen Center for the Arts from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The conversation will be centered around the rise of Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump, but much of the conversation will allow for audience members to ask the panel questions about the election in general. The conversation allots enough time to discuss any matters concerning Trump and the election, but to ensure that all questions are answered in a timely manner please come with prepared questions. Each question will be given respect and answered to the best of the panel’s ability.

Come to the Hett tomorrow at 7 p.m. to learn about the Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump and have your voice heard.
