On October 9, American Studies director, Crister S. Garrett, was interviewed by several radio stations about the outcome of the presidential elections 2016. Professor Garrett talked about how Donald Trump meets the zeitgeist and mobilized more voters than Hillary Clinton. Just like Brexit, Trump’s winning shows the dissatisfaction many Americans feel. But foresighted, Donald Trump is not the only decision maker as the president but has to work together with Congress.
