Donald Trump and the Betrayal of Republican Politics?

Clive Granger A41
Donald J. Trump has been affiliated to multiple political parties in the United States, but in successfully campaigning for the Presidential nomination as a Republican, he joined not only the party of Abraham Lincoln, but more recently Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. In this lecture Professor David Sehat will consider the question of whether Trump represents a departure from Republican Party politics of the last fifty years, or rather the apotheoisis of that politics. Sehat is an Associate Professor at Georgia State University, and John G. Winant Visiting Professor of American Government at the University of Oxford, 2017-18, and the author of The Jefferson Rule: How the Founding Fathers Became Infallible and Our Politics Inflexible (2015) and The Myth of American Religious Freedom (2011 and 2015).
