April 29th marks President Trump’s 100th day in office. For your next event, two distinguished journalists and authors, The Washington Post’s David Ignatius and The New Yorker’s Evan Osnos, come together on stage to discuss what we can expect over the next year.
"After a largely unsuccessful first two months, one lesson should be obvious: the radical, polarizing politics of the campaign trail doesn’t work well in governing the country…The biggest danger to Trump 2.0 is the president’s own impulsive, embattled style.”– David Ignatius

David Ignatius is one of America’s preeminent writers on global politics, economics, and national security. His Washington Post column appears in newspapers around the world. A frequent guest on Morning Joe, he has penned nine bestselling books.
"In nearly fifty years as a businessman, Trump operated largely outside the levers of ordinary accountability...This investigation may last months or years, it cannot be escaped via distraction, and any effort to interfere or slow-walk or obstruct it will only invite more problems.” – Evan Osnos
