(Discussion Group #7) President Trump: The First 100 Days

May 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

“The Loyal Opposition”

Guest: Marlon Marshall

The final discussion group of the semester will focus on the party out of power, looking at how the minority party has reacted to big political changes. What tactics do minority parties use to stay relevant, or effect change? How do they develop their relationships with a new president–or how don’t they? How do new presidents work with (or not work with) the opposition party? Former Director of State Campaigns and Political Engagement for Hillary Clinton and KU graduate Marlon Marshall joins Dole fellows C.J. Jackson and Johanna Maska to talk about how the “out” party adjusts to a new president and what they do to stay relevant.

About spring 2017 Discussion Groups: Fresh off a dramatic election season, KU alums Henry “C.J.” Jackson (POLITICO) and Johanna Maska (former White House Director of Press Advance) will examine and interpret the first 100 days of the Trump administration as they happen. Jackson and Maska will welcome a who’s-who of Washington insiders and reporters to explore a complex season in U.S. politics.
