Claremont Institute Senior Fellow John Marini is one of the few experts on American Government who understood the rise of Trump from the beginning of the 2016 election cycle. Now he looks to the fundamental question that Trump's presidency raises: is the legitimacy of our political system based on the authority of the American people and the American nation-state, or the authority of experts and their technical knowledge in the service of "progress"?
John Marini is a Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute and professor of political science at the University of Nevada-Reno. He received a White House appointment in the Reagan Administration to work as a special assistant to the chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. His latest book is Unmasking the Administrative State: The Crisis of American Politics in the Twenty-First Century.
