Trump, one-term US presidents and democracy

Former US President Donald Trump

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

Donald Trump joined a relatively small club on 7 November: American presidents who failed to get re-elected for a second term in office. BFM speaks to Janet Steele, professor of journalism at George Washington University, to look at Trump’s and other one-term US presidents’ legacies and discuss what we can learn about democracy and serving a nation’s mandate.

Produced by Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by Juliet Jacobs, Lim Sue Ann and Dashran Yohan
