Susan Hennessey and Benjamin Wittes - Unmaking the Presidency: Donald Trump's War on the World's Most Powerful Office

Upcoming Event
Monday, January 27, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Known for their deeply informed and hard-hitting commentary, Hennessy and Wittes, executive editor and editor in chief of the Lawfare website, respectively, analyze Trump’s presidency from the wider context of the history of the office itself. Basing their arguments on the discrepancy between our traditional expectations of a chief executive and Trump’s performance in the first half of his term, the authors explore the origins of the normative view of the presidency, assess where Trump is following the model of predecessors and where he is behaving in radically new ways, and ask if the damage being inflicted on the office is reversible.
