The U.S. presidential race heads into its final stage. Never before has a campaign been as emotional and contested. While the two main-party candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are worlds apart in style and in most policy areas, they do have one thing in common: Both have historically low favorability ratings following costly primary campaigns. As the country seems deeply divided, the stakes couldn’t be higher, not least for Europe: The challenges range from confronting international terrorism, dealing with the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, forging trade agreements as well as expanding transatlantic cooperation. What can be expected during these last days of the race for the U.S. presidency?

Join our distinguished panelists for this timely outlook on one of the most consequential elections in history and its significance for the transatlantic partnership.
