WHAT: NBC News and MSNBC National Political Correspondent Steve Kornacki will look back at the 2016 vote and ahead to the 2018 mid-term elections at a free event for the public and campus community.
Kornacki’s talk, “The Trump Election One Year On: Did it Change Everything?” follows on his visit to campus a year ago immediately after Donald Trump won the presidency. Kornacki believes Trump shattered many of the long-standing “rules” of politics in 2016 and the program will explore whether those rules are now changed forever and what this means going forward.
