Trump’s First 100 Days: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Lecture Series

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


Assembly Hall

The first 100 days of any Presidency tend to be the best opportunity to pass bills and change the status quo. So far, the Trump administration’s policy record has been mixed. President Trump has succeeded in making sweeping changes to environmental regulations through executive order, however, the Republican healthcare bill was withdrawn from consideration and his executive orders on immigration are facing major legal challenges. Going forward, what can we expect on other legislative fronts as the President’s first 100 days wind down? How will President Trump manage divisions within the Republican party in his legislative pushes for tax reform and the federal budget? What impact will the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election have?

Please join the IOP at  International House for a discussion with Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), former Congressman and current IOP fellow Bob Dold (R-IL), and Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA) in conversation with IOP Director Steve Edwards, for a look ahead to what can be expected from the administration and Congress during the months to come.
