With the first presidential debate between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump taking place at 9 pm tonight (and with epic numbers of viewers expected, think Super Bowl) we wanted to share with you these video primers put together by the Council on Foreign Relations on some of the major issues. They’ve taken some pretty complex issues and explained why they’re important not just for the next U.S. president and its citizens, but also for the rest of the world.

Climate Change

Trade

Immigration

China
