The Election and the Future as Country Inaugurates New President
Today, the United States of America will observe the “peaceful transfer of power” that for more than two centuries has marked the transition from one U.S. president to another.
Shortly after noon today, Donald J. Trump will officially become the 45th president of the United States.
At this moment in the country’s history, UKNOW wanted to get a perspective on the campaign that just occurred and the policy issues — both domestic and foreign — that a new a new president and Congress will likely tackle.
To explore these issues in depth, we talked with two leading experts — Emily Beaulieu, an associate professor in comparative politics, and Stephen Voss, an associate professor specializing in voting behavior and political methodology, both from UK's Department of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences.
