Trump and the US Midterm Elections with Steve Okun

Hosted in conjunction with The American Club

The US midterm elections are nearly upon us with the control of both the US House of Representatives and Senate up for grabs. What's at stake in these elections? How likely will the Democrats gain control of the House and/or Senate? How might these changes impact Asia, such as with regard to trade? Is impeachment on the horizon? Steve will discuss the potential political and economic impacts which may result from what could be one of the most consequential midterm elections in US history.
