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.
