The 2020 United States presidential election campaign has been run against an unprecedented backdrop of a global pandemic and economic disruption. Join us in the homestretch of the race as teams from the Yale-NUS College Debate Society face off in a mock debate. Hear the policy positions that Team Trump and Team Biden are running on, and get a sense of what the next four years might hold for the United States and the world. Following a spirited exchange by both teams, our faculty analysts will offer commentary on the arguments presented and the election.
