Today as the transfer of power took place in Washington from President Donald Trump to President Elect Joe Biden –Dr Andy Wroe, Senior Lecturer in American Politics and co-author of The Ordinary Presidency of Donald J Trump discussed Joe Biden’s inauguration and what he predicts will be the three ‘headlines’ of Trump’s Presidency.

Thirdly, his response to the corona pandemic, or “the abject failure of the government on his part” to control the virus.
