On November 8th, Americans will hit the polls to elect their next president. The candidate who secures the magic 270 electoral votes wins. In one of the most closely watched races, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Party nominee Donald Trump remain neck-and-neck in the final polls. Whose planned future will Americans vote for? Who will be headed to the White House?
The fierce competition in this year's U.S. presidential race is also seen in the polarizing battle in campaign pledges. Clinton and Trump stand at opposite ends on many key issues ranging from the economy to environmental policies. Foreign policy has also been an area in which the two hold contrasting views. While Clinton has stressed the importance of partnerships with allies, Donald Trump has argued that allies should take on a bigger cost-sharing burden. Clinton has said nuclear weapons will not be allowed on the Korean Peninsula, but Trump has hinted at the possibility of allowing nuclear armament by Seoul and Tokyo. How will the results of this election influence Korea?
We sit down to discuss these issues and more.
