Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, Humphrey School of Public Affairs Presents

The Trump Administration and Presidential Power

9/16/19, 12:00 PM

About this event

President Trump is using and expanding on executive powers that were initiated by his predecessors. Trump executive actions, taken without Congress or the courts, include military action in Syria, defying subpoenas, and invoking “emergency powers” to spend more on a border wall. At the same time, President Trump has violated many previous norms of presidential behavior. Join us for a conversation with New York Times journalist Charlie Savage and Vice President Walter Mondale. 

Charlie Savage is a Washington correspondent for the New York Times and a contributor to MSNBC. He has been awarded many honors for journalism including winning the Pulitzer Prize in 2007. He has written two books and taught a seminar on national security and the Constitution at Georgetown University.

This event is part of the Mondale Dialogues. This event series promotes the decency and fairness that have guided the public life of Walter F. Mondale and the principles he has long fought for: strengthened lawmaker accountability, expanded opportunity and justice, and deepened international connections.
