Transatlantic Dialogue Luncheon:
The First 100 Days of Donald Trump’s Presidency
The first 100 days of every new US administration uncover the first benchmark of achievements. From the beginning of his tenure, President Donald Trump has challenged established practices.
The Executive Orders on immigration and moving away from international trade agreements have demonstrated the rigorousness of the political turn. The failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act present a bumpy start, rather than ‘getting things done’.
A difficult relationship with mainstream media outlets has caused tensions not only at home, but also abroad.
How can the first 100 days of the 45th President of the United States be evaluated? What does ‘America First’ mean for international free trade and transatlantic relations? How does the way in which the Trump Administration handles media shape the role of media in general?
