The US presidential election of 2020 promises to be controversial, held against the backdrop of President Trump's term in office, the Covid-19 pandemic, a faltering economy and the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Tonight, as we have since 2008, University of Plymouth academics Dr Harry Bennett, Dr Alicja Syska and Dr Simon Topping, of the history programme, along with Dr David Brockington, lecturer in politics, will answer audience questions on the issues of the election and what it means for the US, the UK and the world.
