The 2016 US Presidential race is shaping up to be the most fiercely contested and perhaps frightening campaign in years. Now that both parties have a presumptive nominee, join some of Australia's leading experts on U.S. politics for a lively discussion on all things Trump and Clinton.

We will discuss the issues in play, who is likely to win and the consequences for the United States and the international community.
