Trump, One-Term U.S. Presidents, and Democracy
Janet Steele, Professor of Journalism, George Washington University (Washington D.C.)
Donald Trump joined a relatively small club on Nov 7: American presidents who failed to get re-elected for a second term in office. We look at Trump’s and other one-term U.S. presidents’ legacies, and discuss what we can learn about democracy and serving a nation’s mandate.
