Profs and Pints: Trump and Congress: Assessing the Damage After a Year"
Profs and Pints presents: Trump and Congress: Assessing the Damage After a Year, with James A. Thurber, distinguished professor of government and founder of the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University.
President Trump pledged to change the way Washington works as he conducted one of the most divisive, angry and bizarre presidential campaigns in U.S. history. With the one-year anniversary of his inauguration approaching, it's worth asking: Has he made good on that promise? What has been the impact of his distinct, tweet-dependent governing style? How much has political polarization derailed relations between the President and Congress? Will the next few years bring more policy gridlock?
Hear these questions tackled by James A. Thurber, author and editor a dozen books on American politics, including Obama in Office and, most recently, Rivals for Power: Presidential-Congressional Relations. He'll look back at the past year, assess the actions of President Trump and the Congress, talk about their impact on domestic and foreign policies, and discuss how conflicts between the president and Congress are at the heart of America's political controversies.
