Democrats and Republicans


A year after Donald Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States, there has been much discussion about the unorthodox nature of his presidency and the changes to the country’s traditional two-party system. Does the new administration’s policies reflect a paradigmatic shift? What has been the impact at the political, economic and social levels? Given the current polarization, are there opportunities for bipartisanship at any level of government or in policy issue areas?
