Race to the White House – President-elect Donald J Trump

Race to the White House – President-elect Donald J Trump.

This week on Race to the White House, Brendon O’Connor, Tom Switzer and Emma Lancaster digest the news that Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States of America.

They discuss Trump’s path to victory, what a Trump presidency might look like and who will be on Team Trump as the campaign transitions from mobilising the vote into governing the nation.

They also consider whether the new leader of the free world will be getting an invitation “down under”, question how the pollsters got it so wrong and how the world is going to fare when Trump is handed the keys to the White House in 2017.

Race to the White House podcast is a collaboration between the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, 2ser 107.3 and The Conversation.

Emma Lancaster is a multi-platform journalist, and is the producer of The Wire on 2ser 107.3. If you have questions about the podcast or have any suggestions about what we should discuss, contact Emma Lancaster on
