CINCINNATI — With one last presidential debate left to go, the hits keep on coming for Donald Trump.

In the wake of shocking hot-mic tapes resurrected from 2005, the Republican nominee is now not only defending himself against spiraling accusations of prurient behavior toward women, but embroiled in a civil war of his own making with top figures in his own party.

Episode 14 of Special Relationship, the trans-Atlantic politics podcast from Mic and The Economist, uses the breather before the final debate to break down the latest in the race for president — and look ahead at what could possibly be next.

Helping size up Trump's battle against Democrat Hillary Clinton: Special guests David Rennie, Washington bureau chief of the Economist, and Mic politics editor Luke Brinker.
