Trump vs Clinton: Let the Race for the White House Commence

Talk Wednesday 22 June 2016, 7:00 PM

The candidates are all but decided and the race for the White House has begun. With six months of fierce campaigning ahead in what is set to be one of the most contentious US presidential races in recent history, we will be discussing what the deciding factors will be.

Will Republicans be able to unify behind Donald Trump? What does the nomination of such a divisive figure mean for the future of the party? Can Hilary Clinton defy the approval ratings and garner popular support? Join us as we debate the key issues facing both candidates.
