This week Donald Trump had an opportunity to be presidential as he visited Mexico’s head of state, then Trump arguably blew up his Hispanic support with a harsh anti-immigration speech.

Hillary Clinton called Trump an un-presidential “loose cannon,” as she mostly steered clear of public events this week. Meanwhile, the moderators for the fall debates have been announced.

Journalists Maria Elena Salinas and Rebecca Sinderbrand join Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson and Robin Young on our weekly presidential politics roundtable to discuss where the campaigns go from here.
