ASPST Breakfast with Dr. Kumi Yokoe | Professor, Department of Global Innovation Studies at Toyo University
On Thursday, October 21, Asia Society Japan Center will welcome, Dr. Kumi Yokoe of Toyo University’s Department of Global Innovation Studies for a conversation titled, “The 2020 U.S. Elections and Potential Challenges to US-Japan Relations”. Part of the pre - U.S. Presidential Election series, Dr. Yokoe will share with us her insights of the 2020 race to the White House and a look on the potential impact of the U.S. – Japan relations.
Dr. Yokoe has worked extensively covering the U.S. Election since 1996. She was a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. which predicted President Trump’s win in 2016. This election is truly unique with the multiple global crisis before us, but in this conundrum, how will the secret Trump supporters and the Millennials play out on November 3rd? It is an opportunity for us to sum up the past 4 years and what to anticipate for the U.S. – Japan relationship going forward.
