THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2018-11-08

Generational shift: US midterms reshape Republican base in Trump's image

High stakes, high turnout and a generational shift in US politics. We're watching the dust settle on the midterm elections with the Democrats flipping the House of Representatives along with a whole host of key governor's races, while Republicans consolidated their advantage in the Senate. Expect more checks and balances along with more gridlock. We weigh the loss of the House for Donald Trump and ask if a setback in 2018 might nonetheless lead to a win in 2020.

Produced by Yi SONG, Alessandro XENOS, Laure FOURQUET.
