100 Days in Office: The Trump Administration
Lecture and Discussion / Free admission / Registration required
The so-called presidential “honeymoon” period – the first months in office – is considered crucial to establishing a tone to a new administration and providing evidence of its policy priorities and governing acumen. This presentation will describe and analyze the early leadership and policy priorities of the Trump Administration as well as project its likely courses of action over the rest of its term.
