When can a democracy slide into autocracy? In his provocative new book Trumpocracy, conservative writer David Frum examines the ways in which Trump and his administration continually undermine our most important public institutions. Media freedom, judicial independence, the right to have one’s vote counted fairly — in just the first year of his presidency, Trump has steadily damaged many of the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy. What happens next under Trump, and how can we prevent a push towards illiberalism?

David Frum is a senior editor at The Atlantic, the author of nine books, and served as a special assistant and speechwriter for President George W. Bush. Join the Brennan Center for a discussion on democracy and America’s future with Frum and NYU School of Law Dean Trevor Morrison, a leading expert on the presidency and the Constitution.
