Few people ever thought he'd get here. And yet, with weeks to go until the U.S. presidential election, Donald Trump, the property mogul who was thought of as variously too lightweight, too rich, too erratic, too right-wing or too uninterested to win, could feasibly take the Oval Office. Trump is only a couple of points behind Hillary Clinton in some polls. 

A Clinton win still looks more likely, but given the propensity of both Trump and the international political scene for defying professional pundits in recent months, you'd be stupid to write him off.

That in mind, we thought we'd take a look at what could actually happen in the days and weeks after, should he take office.

Will Trump start a trade war with China? How would life change for minorities? And will Mexico really pay for the wall?

Listen to hear Newsweek's Josh Lowe and Mirren Gidda discuss all the above and more with David Hawkins, the events chair of American Voices International and a former events chair of Republicans Overseas who has provided informal advice to the Trump campaign, and Stacy Hilliard, Chair of American Voices International and Vice Chair of Republicans Overseas. 

Newsweek's Foreign Service is recorded and edited by Jordan Saville.
