In the upcoming 2020 presidential election, U.S. citizens face a hugely important choice with major implications for the country's future: whether to keep President Donald Trump in office or elect former Vice President Joe Biden to replace him.

As Americans grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, economic hardship and a reckoning with racism, what can we learn from each candidate's history of responding in moments of crisis?

The latest edition of FRONTLINE's recurring election-year special, "The Choice 2020: Trump vs. Biden," delves into the lives of both men, focusing on how they have handled challenges in their personal and professional lives.

What does this history indicate about where each candidate might take these deeply divided United States as commander in chief for the next four years?
Guest: Michael Kirk, director and producer of FRONTLINE's "The Choice 2020: Trump vs. Biden"
