Six weeks out from the US Presidential Election there’s one question on everyone’s mind – will Donald Trump be in office for four more years?
His handling of COVID-19 has been widely condemned and racial tensions have sparked protests in many American cities.
Polls suggest Democratic nominee Joe Biden is leading the race, but President Trump has form when it comes to defying predictions.
Joining host Hamish Macdonald – key figures who have worked inside the White House on both sides of the political divide.
How serious is the threat of civil war? What would a second Trump term look like? And how would it affect us in Australia and the long term power struggle with China?
Joining Hamish on the panel:
Kim Hoggard, Former advisor to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George HW Bush
Barbara Heineback, Former First Lady White House Press Officer who has worked as a consultant to Presidents Carter and Clinton
Cole Brown, Author and US ex-pat
John Ruddick, Author and Liberal Party insider
