A year after one of the greatest political upsets in American history, Elaine Kamarck, the founding director of the Center for Effective Public Management and a senior fellow in the Governance Studies program, reflects on Trump’s presidency, his greatest challenges and successes, and what we should expect from the 2018 midterms and future of the Trump administration.

Also in this episode, Molly Reynolds discusses Republicans “punting” on difficult decisions in the House tax bill for our regular “What’s Happening in Congress” segment.
