The US Midterm Elections: Implications for Trump and Merkel @ Park Hyatt Hamburg
Nov 1 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Robin Alexander. Quelle: Die Welt.

The US Midterm elections are rapidly approaching, and people all around the globe are following the daily developments in Washington, including the suspenseful Supreme Court Nomination process. Democrats are hoping to break the Republicans’ monopoly on power, while Republicans are going all out to maintain the majorities they enjoy in both chambers of Congress. Meanwhile, in Germany, the ruling coalition is showing signs of cracks. Will the US elections influence the stability of the seemingly fragile grand coalition? How will they affect the Germany Landtagswahlen, and what will be the longer term impact on the German-American relationship?

Robin Alexander will address these topics five days before Americans head to the polls in a speech titled The US Midterm Elections: Implications for Trump and Merkel.

Mr. Alexander was the founding editor of Vanity Fair in Germany, and in 2008 became a journalist for Die Welt and Welt am Sonntag. He appears regularly on TV talk shows hosted by Anne Will, Sandra Maischberger and Maybrit Illner, due to his high level of expertise on national politics and topics relating to Chancellor Merkel. His book “Die Getriebenen — Merkel und die Flüchtlingspolitik: Report aus dem Innern der Macht” reached the top of the Spiegel bestseller list last year.

You can find a “taste sample” here – “Die Entfremdung von Europa begann schon vor Trump” von Robin Alexander.

The speech will be in English and accompanied by a three-course meal and fine wine. Register simply by sending us an email with your name(s), and kindly transferring payment of 35€ per member or 45€ per guest to:
