Politics & Polls: The First 100 Days

April 28th, 2017, 4:08pm by Sam Wang


Historian Meg Jacobs, Julian, and I chew over how Trump’s first 100 days. Listen to my reaction to Jacobs’s assertion that Trump is off to a strong start. If spit-up coffee could get through speakers, you would be well coated.

In seriousness, my own view is that Trump has weakened the presidency through ineffectiveness at pushing policy goals with Congress, getting multiple executive orders turned back by the judiciary, and making utterances that are increasingly seen as being without force. Kind of like Franklin D. Roosevelt in reverse.
