Keeping (up with) the Republic
One of the interesting twists of the overblown Trump’s 100 Days” stories is that they are not just about what Trump has accomplished, but about what he has not, and why. This piece from The Guardianargues that what Trump’s first 100 days in office suggest is that American democracy is stronger than we thought (and maybe feared) it might be. There is much to think about in that piece. Is the author right about the success of the strength of the founders’ framework?
