Would Donald Trump Be a Dangerous President?
Senior Republican national security officials in the US have signed a letter arguing that Donald Trump “would be a dangerous president”. Are they right?

Our expert witnesses are: Timothy O’Brien, author of The Art of Being The Donald; Peter Feaman, Florida representative for the Republican National Committee; Daniel Drezner, professor of international politics at Tufts; and Elaine Kamarck from the Brookings Institution, an expert on presidential power and its limits.
