Running Mate is a US election podcast – just for Brits. In our ninth episode, we look at what the result will mean for the UK, which has spent the last four years cosying up to Donald Trump
Host Graeme Demianyk speaks to Kiran Stacey of the Financial Times and HuffPost UK’s Rachel Wearmouth about the UK-US “special relationship” and whether Downing Street is starting to look to build bridges with Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate currently leading in the polls. What will a win for either candidate mean for the prized trade deal with the US?
We also chatted to HuffPost’s climate, energy and environmental politics correspondent Alex Kaufman about America’s impact on the planet and whether another four years of Trump will be disastrous.
