In the American tradition, we often speak of a new president’s “honeymoon” during the first 100 days. Professor Richard Murray brings his keen observations and encyclopedic knowledge of politics to an analysis of the first 100 days of our forty-fifth president.
President Donald J. Trump was elected after a bitter and sharply partisan presidential campaign. In his first 100 days in office, has he focused on healing the wounds, or have divisions been exacerbated by the kinds of radical actions on immigration, trade, health care, and other key issues that he promised during his campaign? Has the Republican majority in Congress worked well with a Republican president, or have internal frictions re-emerged? Does the public in general seem reassured by what has been accomplished so far? What should we expect after the first 100 days?
Professor Murray holds the Bob Lanier Chair in Urban Public Policy at the University of Houston and is director of the Survey Research Institute at the University’s Center for Public Policy. During his long career in politics, he has consulted for more than 200 political campaigns.
