Trump, Executive Power, and the Bully Pulpit
The Claremont Institute and The Heritage Foundation co-host a panel to discuss President Trump's use of executive power.
Our distinguished panel looks at how President Trump has approached executive power in important and novel ways, paying special attention to how the President has asserted greater control over the administrative state, curbed the previous Administration’s use of “enforcement discretion” to effectively change law, and used the power of the “bully pulpit” to advance his objectives and inflame his critics. Claremont co-hosted this panel with The Heritage Foundation on February 22, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Dr. John C. Eastman is joined by Andrew McCarthy to discuss issues on Constitutional rights of non-citizens located outside the United States.
Judges must navigate between interpreting the Constitution and statutes, working within existing precedents and applying both bodies of law to particular cases. Striking this balance has policy consequences that render the Supreme Court a political branch in the public's mind. As the heated debate of Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement demonstrates, the Court is no longer seen as the "least dangerous branch." How should justices address this tension in their decisions and opinions? Can the Court return to a narrower vision of its judicial duty? If not, what judicial philosophy best fits the reality of the Court's role in a self-governing republic? Claremont's John Eastman joins an expert panel at the American Enterprise Institute to answer these questions and more. (Dr. Eastman's presentation begins at 65:09.)
