Join us at a member-only event as The Australian’s Washington Correspondent Cameron Stewart discusses Donald Trump’s administration and rise to power with Editor-at-Large Paul Kelly.

Cameron covered the 2016 presidential campaign at length and has been on the ground to observe the most unique presidency we’ve ever seen. He will take you behind the scenes at the White House, examine the dramas and infighting plaguing the administration, and explore the diplomatic tensions with Russia and North Korea.

Paul Kelly has covered every Australian government from Whitlam to Turnbull and will provide his perspective on the Trump era, his flight to protectionism and his recent trade strategy – one that Paul has labelled “a horror movie in action".

The pair will also delve into the implications of Trump’s presidency for Australia and the close relationship between our two nations.

Paul and Cameron will take your questions following the discussion. Seats are limited so book yours now.
