It's been six months since Trump was elected, and global politics has been transformed. Economic and imperial tensions have increased, US militarism is expanding, while austerity continues to hit people hard in the US itself. Some are even declaring the end of the neoliberal era. This talk will assess the political shifts made by the Trump administration so far, and discuss their significance for the left.
