New Series on FixGov: Trump’s First 100 Days
Today marks the 100th day of the Trump presidency. In the coming days FixGov will feature analysis of the administration so far by Brookings scholars and guest contributors. Here are a few of the posts to come:
- Elaine Kamarck, author of Why Presidents Fail And How They Can Succeed Again, will kick off the series with a discussion of Trump’s temperament and the influence it’s had on the administration’s ability to govern effectively.
- Tom Mann’s analysis will utilize the 100-day mark as a guidepost to check on American democracy and its resilience under an entirely new sort of administration.
- Molly Reynolds will discuss relations between the Trump White House and the House of Representatives, and Greg Koger will look at where the administration stands with the Senate.
- James Pfiffner will look at friction between the White House and the Cabinet and how it quickly influences the broader executive branch.
- Richard Skinner’s piece will focus on the Trump presidency as conventionally Republican in its ideology, but lacking the capacity to get things done.
