US election: Bob Carr warns of Trump’s presidency

Former Foreign Minister Bob Carr says if Donald Trump wins the presidency it would do ‘enormous harm’ for Australia. 

Speaking to Neil Mitchell, Mr Carr said the Republican nominee sabotaged his chances by targeting women and Hispanics. 

‘He’d be a disaster for us,’ he said.

The trade war with China would be of particular concern, he said.

‘Trump is the one who stands out as being ignorant about the implications of America’s nuclear arsenal and prepared to stumble blindly into a nuclear exchange,’ he said.

Politico’s Florida Bureau Chief, Matt Dixon, said 70 per cent of people in Florida had already voted.
