Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are vying for the White House in one of the most tumultuous presidential elections in living memory. It leaves America at a crossroads, raising profound questions about the future of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, global investment, U.S. military commitments in Asia, and China’s influence in the South China Sea. Clinton brings the foreign policy experience of a former secretary of state, while Trump’s call to recast America’s position in the world is resonating with many voters. The stakes for relations between Tokyo and Washington could not be higher. In this discussion, speakers debate what the presidential election will mean for U.S. ties with Japan and the rest of Asia. 
Panelists: 
Kent Calder, Director, Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies, SAIS/Johns Hopkins University; former Special Advisor to the U.S. Ambassador to Japan
Takashi Imamura, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Marubeni America Corporation, Washington Office
Torkel Patterson, Member of the Board, Central Japan Railway Company; former Special Assistant to the President, former Senior Director Asia, Deputy Assistant Secretary for South Asia, U.S. Department of State
