Professor Pahnke: Trump's 'Law-and-Order' Message Ineffective

Thursday, July 30, 2020

TEHRAN TIMES -- In this regard, Anthony Pahnke, the assistant professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University, tells the Tehran Times “right now, it seems that Trump is trying to mobilize people around a ‘law-and-order’ message in response to the ongoing protests against police brutality and racism.”

While polls suggest that Joe Biden now leads in three key states that Trump won in 2016, Pahnke says “there is still the chance that Trump could win in November.” He adds, “Yet, it is not apparent that Trump’s message is working.”
