The 2016 presidential election has been full of surprises and the fight to win the presidential election is heating up. After winning in California and New Jersey, Hillary Clinton declared victory in the Democratic presidential primary. Clinton and Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, will now face each other as they battle to become the next president of the United States. In this program, a panel of prominent journalists will discuss the results of the U.S. presidential primary election and the candidates’ position on key issues, such as foreign policy, defense budget, Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), among many other topics. They will also discuss who will most likely win the presidency, and the advantages and disadvantages of the candidates becoming president.
