Munk Debate – American Democracy

The 21st semi-annual Munk Debate is held in Toronto. Participants will debate the motion “Be it resolved, American democracy is in its worst crisis in a generation and Donald J. Trump is to blame.” Newt Gingrich (former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives) and Kimberley Strassel (senior editorial writer, the Wall Street Journal) will argue against the resolution while E.J. Dionne, Jr (senior fellow at the Brookings Institution) and Andrew Sullivan (New York magazine editor) will argue in favour of it. (October 12, 2017)
