About the topic
lady-and-the-trump-a-panel-discussion-at-bangalore-international-centreA no-holds barred debate on this most extraordinary of US elections. A statistician will unpack the numbers while Democrats and Republicans discuss the factors– both local and global, that gave rise to Trump, Hillary and their campaigns. Was it the economic slowdown, joblessness, fear of losing their national identity and culture, immigration, Islamic terrorism, or just a gradual narrowing of national boundaries that caused the issues being aired about in this election campaign? Role of gender in this election. Role of the candidates’ past history. And it must be said: Trump’s many coarse comments about women.
