Studium Generale - The rhetoric of Clinton and Trump Prof.mr.dr. Hans de Bruijn

During the American presidential election a lot of mudslinging is going on. The meanest strategies are launched to eliminate the opponent. Donald Trump appears to be a master in framing; by using smart and very bold one-liners he manages to convince his audience. Which frames will Hillary Clinton use? At this Election Day Hans de Bruijn will expose rhetorical tricks of both candidates.

Tubantia reporter Ron Hemmink keeps us posted about the situation in the US.
