Has Donald Trump fundamentally changed the Republican party, and all of American politics? And will Trump be the kingmaker that decides the midterm elections this fall? How has the divisive populism of Trump changed how journalists in Washington DC work, and what they cover? Carl Hulse is the chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times and an acknowledged authority on the U.S. Congress and national political affairs. A veteran of more than 35 years reporting in the nation's capital, Carl is a sought-after analyst who has covered 7 presidencies and 18 congressional election cycles.
At Nordic Media Days, he will talk about how Trump's presidency and the attack on the US Capitol on January 6. 2021 continues to affect US politics. In conversation with Norwegian lawyer and U.S. analyst, Sofie Høgestøl, he will discuss what to expect from the upcoming elections, and how it feels to cover politics in a time of disinformation in a polarized nation.
