Journalists from outlets across the ideological spectrum will debate President Trump’s performance over the first 100 days of his administration in Manhattan on April 24.
Slate Political Correspondent Jamelle Bouie, National Review Editor Rich Lowry and The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin will be joined by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Eurasia Group’s Ian Bremmer for “Unresolved: Trump’s First 100 Days,” an event by Intelligence Squared U.S., a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
“The first 100 days of the Trump administration have been filled with a whirlwind of new policies and challenges to Washington orthodoxies, and the country is sharply divided,” reads the event promotion.
“But if we are open to it, we might find that there are reasonable arguments being made by both sides on many issues. And those conversations can start by considering: President Trump’s “America First” policy, and what it means to different people; the administration’s impact on the health of the stock market and our economy; the team that the president has assembled; and whether it’s the media, or the president, that’s under attack.”
Trump seemed to embrace the 100-day benchmark during the campaign, but tweeted on Friday that it is a “ridiculous standard” to judge the progress of his presidency.
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!
