Eighth issue of IRMO Brief written by M.Sc. Krševan Antun Dujmović analyzes the differences between the two presidential candidates, the Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the Republican Donald John Trump ahead of the United States presidential election on 8 November. The newly elected president will become the most powerful person in the world, and the foreign policy their respective administrations take will have an effect on the future of the whole international community. Clinton knows the ways and means of Washington’s policies to the core and she has a long experience and knowledge within the US administration. Trump on the other hand is not a career politician but rather a businessman and media personality and he is lacking experience in international affairs and US foreign policy. Dujmović argues how the newly elected president will determine the US foreign policy in strategic areas, including Trans-Atlantic partnership and relations with Russia and the Middle East.
