Last week almost 250 people attended a lively debate on the foreign policies of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, organized by the Ohio State chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society at Saxbe Auditorium, Moritz College of Law.

"Trump vs. Clinton: What 2016 Means for the World" featured Nick Dowling, president of IDS International, speaking in support of Clinton, and Randy Schweller, professor of political science, speaking in support of Donald Trump. Moderating the debate was AHS faculty adviser Peter Mansoor, Gen. Raymond E. Mason Jr. Chair in Military History. Mansoor and Schweller are affiliates of the Mershon Center.

The debate was lively and engaging, with presentations from Dowling and Schweller and lots of questions from students. Martin Lopez, president of the AHS Ohio State chapter, opened and closed the event. You can see a slideshow of photos from the debate (sound included) below.
