Who will make America great again?

Time: 6pm to 7pm

With former Vice President Joe Biden declared President elect by the media, will he be the person to make America great again?


In this year's election campaign President Trump sought to convince voters that his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy and race protests had done enough to win a second term.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden was attempting to become the oldest American President in history on a platform of healing divisions, health-care and environmental reform.
With the Democratic candidate’s campaign appearing to have been successful, this panel will meet to debate if he might make America great again. How might a Biden presidency repair the racial, economic and ideological schisms that threaten America’s future?

This panel will be chaired by Liam McArthur MSP, Member, Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body, and includes: 

  • Jason Boxt, US pollster
  • Dr Clodagh Harrington, Associate Professor in American Politics, De Montfort University, Leicester
  • Kenny Farquharson, Columnist, The Times

The event is run in partnership with The Times, Scotland.
