The 2020 US election ushered in the end of Donald Trump’s presidency. The new administration under President-elect Joe Biden will face a politically torn and socially polarized nation, exhausted by a raging pandemic and the economic crisis it created. Internationally, America is facing a new geopolitical constellation where past allies are being treated as rivals and old rivals have become partners. The aim of this roundtable is to review Trump’s four years in power and to evaluate the events between the election on November 3 and Inauguration Day on January 20, especially in the light of the Capitol Riots of January 6. The discussion will also touch upon the role of the presidency as an institution, its power and limitations.
