This week on Race to the White House, Brendon O’Connor, Tom Switzer and Emma Lancaster are joined by Gorana Grgic to discuss the very real foreign policy disputes between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Is Trump a realist, conscious of the costs and limits of the use of force? Or is he more a hardline nationalist in foreign affairs? And is Clinton likely to distinguish her foreign policy from Barack Obama’s?
Also on the agenda: a preview of the first US presidential debate, Donald Trump Jr’s tweet that likened Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles, and the debate over how to handle the recent terror incidents in the US.
