A Presidency Like No Other
Kevin Wagner
Lifelong Learning Professorship in Current Affairs, 2017-2018
Lifelong Learning Professorship in Current Affairs, 2013-2014

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: This program will explore and review the successes and failures in the first year of the Trump Administration. Using exit polls and in-depth analysis, Professor Wagner will explore the controversies, successes, and failures in a historical context. We will consider if the Trump Presidency changes the scope and nature of American politics and what the future will hold. The lecture will explore the influences of technology, political media, parties, interest groups and public opinion. Professor Wagner will present survey results and a projection for the state of American politics going forward. Combining visuals, data and occasional humor, Professor Wagner will bring the Trump Presidency into focus.
