The Trump Presidency -- One Year Later . . .

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.)
