President Trump signing the Presidential memoranda regarding the Federal hiring freeze, the Mexico City Policy, and the TPP withdrawal on January 23, 2017.

On this episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus take a step back to look at the current events that slipped through the cracks while we’ve been all wrapped up in Trumpgate:

  • The Dems go on tour (or something like that)! Their “Resistance Summer” fifty-state strategy
  • The PGA tournament comes back to a Trump-owned golf course
  • The Travel Ban: still frozen in place
  • The debt ceiling and debt limit: once a dividing point, now not so much?

Then the profs dig in to the massive changes the Trump administration has made to Obama-era regulations. By the way, don't forget to listen to our weekly Texas-centered episodes, too!

Party Politics is produced by Dacia Clay, Edel Howlin and Laura Lucas. Our audio engineer is Todd Hulslander.
