The campaign and ultimate election victory of Donald Trump has left many people feeling aghast and disoriented. One writer likened the feeling to sea-sickness – terrible for a while but sure to pass quickly enough. But will it? Some believe he will not serve out his full term but Trump is a street-fighter and may not be so easily dislodged. With Congress and the Supreme Court under his control, his freedom of action is almost unlimited. Will the America of 2020 resemble the country we once thought we knew? A panel of experts assess how Trump’s election came to pass and what it might mean for Americans and for the rest of us.

Washington Correspondent of The Irish Times since December 2012, Simon Carswell was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Gary Younge is editor-at-large for the Guardian. His recent book, Another Day in the Death of America, focussed on the victims of American gun culture. Amy Chozick is a national political correspondent for The New York Times and the paper’s lead reporter covering Hillary Clinton and the Clinton campaign. Harper Collins will publish her memoir about covering Clinton next year.

Moderator, Mark Little became RTÉ's first Washington Correspondent in 1995. He has written two books on America Turn Left at Greenland and The New America.
