nycpf's picture

On November 9, 2016, Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the U.S. While some cheered this surprise victory, others expressed dismay and despondence -- the latter of which still resonate today.

As we embark on this one-year mark, we'll take a look back at how the Trump Presidency affected our daily, personal lives, if any at all. Here, we can offer anecdotal examples on a personal and introspective level.

This is a unique event because it will be the first time that we devote the entire event discussing the Trump Presidency.

To that end, we'll discuss the following:

I. How the Trump Presidency impacted your economic well being. Also, how certain domestic programs affected your personal, daily aspect of your lives. (e.g., rescinding of DACA, the attempted "repeal and replace" of Obamacare, the "Trump Tax Plan, the "Travel Ban," etc.)

II. How President Trump contributed -- or even instigated, in some instances -- to the overall mood of the country. (e.g., Charlottesville, the NFL protests, his relationship with Congress, interactions with the media, the infamous Twitter feuds, etc.)

III. How President Trump shaped and effectuated our standing in the World. (e.g., the withdrawal of the Paris Climate Accord, the "de-certification" of the Iran Deal, crisis in North Korea, military strikes in Syria, the Middle East policy, the thorny relation with China, and our relations with the E.U. allies.
