As Donald Trump’s presidency approaches its first anniversary, join our panel for a review of the past 12 months and a look ahead to what we might expect next.   From twitter storm to twitter storm, the Trump presidency has been marked by controversy, chaos and confusion. Tensions with North Korea have escalated, the Paris climate agreement abandoned, travel bans imposed, while the President has failed to repeal Obamacare and his administration’s links with Russia remain under investigation by the FBI. This expert panel discusses the turmultous  politics of our neighbour to the south and its implications for Canada.
