With the U.S. presidential election right around the corner, Brian and Tim explore what the results could mean for U.S. trade and economic sanctions policy over the next four years with respect to China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and Cuba. Then, in the Lightning Round, we take a quick look at the upcoming, likely historic, IPO of Ant Group and whether the U.S. government can do anything to slow it down, and we bring you another round of sanctions trivia (back by popular demand).
