President Donald Trump at his first address to Congress (White House/Shealah Craighea)
The election of Donald Trump as 45th president has generated an almost unprecedented flow of breaking news headlines, nonstop cable talk, and partisan faceoffs. On the 1-year anniversary of the election, experts from media and politics step back from the day-to-day clashes with a measured examination of the changes President Trump has brought, the high points and low points, his improvisational style of governing, and how the political landscape has changed in 12 tumultuous months.
Participants Julian Zelizer, columnist for CNN and professor of history and public affairs at Princeton; Jackie Calmes, White House editor for the Los Angeles Times Washington bureau; and Al Felzenberg, presidential historian and visiting lecturer at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, join Ken Walsh, veteran White House correspondent for U.S. News & World Report to discuss what we know and what we might anticipate in 2018.
