A Nation Engaged

Apr 25, 2017

Friday, April 28 at 7:00 pm

As the Trump presidency approaches its 100th day, NPR News presents A Nation Engaged, fostering conversation on the topic of Power & the Presidency with this framing question: “How powerful should any American president be?”

Before his election, back in October, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump laid out a 100 Day Action Plan. He called it his Contract With The American Voter. Among other things, it called for the full repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, suspension of immigration from certain "terror-prone regions," and the lifting of "roadblocks" to let "infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline move forward."
