Trump critic is favorite to become Australian prime minister

Bill Shorten, an outspoken critic of U.S. President Donald Trump, is the favorite to become Australian prime minister.

Shorten’s party, the center-left Labor Party, goes into the 2019 election campaign as a firm favorite. It has led the conservative coalition in most opinion polls in the last three years.

If Shorten becomes prime minister and visits the U.S., he can expect questions about a radio interview he gave three years ago in which he said some of then-presumptive Republican presidential candidate Trump’s views were “barking mad.”
