Political Science Department Host Panel Discussion on the first 100 days of Donald Trump's Presidency

St. Mary's College of Maryland's Political Science Department will host a panel discussion on Wednesday, April 26, 4:50 p.m. in Cole Cinema at the College's Campus Center.

The panel discussion, titled 100 Days of Trump, will feature commentary and analysis by Political Science Professors Todd Eberly, Matt Fehrs, Susan Grogan, and Antonio Ugues.

But as President Trump rolls back Obama-era policies, his own agenda is bogged down by conflict, controversy, court challenges, and continued gridlock in Congress. What have we learned from President Trump's first 100 days and what might we expect from the next 100 or 1,000 days?
