Unhappy Anniversary

We will have a discussion on the results of the first year of Donald Trump's presidency. Our historian, Wayne Luney, recommends reading the January 13–19 issue of The Economist and/or "Fire and Fury" if you can obtain a copy. Possible topics include the following:

  • The tax reform bill. Is it really reform or a giveaway to corporations and the wealthy? What about the resulting deficit?

  • Changes in the judiciary. Federal judges have lifetime tenure. What will be the effects of Trump appointees?

  • Immigration, the Wall and DACA. What will happen? What are the moral implications of deporting people to countries where their lives would be at serious risk if returned?

  • Withdrawal from existing and proposed international agreements. TPP, NAFTA, and Paris climate change agreements.

  • Chances of war with North Korea and perhaps other countries.

  • Trump's character. Tweeting first and thinking later, if at all. General ignorance of and/or disdain for civil discourse and constitutional norms.
