Party Politics, National Edition Ep. 39: What Will Trump Do In 2018?

“I think the idea that you’re going to shut down the government because of DACA is incredibly problematic for Democrats” – Jay Aiyer, co-host of Party Politics, on the politics of Washington around Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are expected to continue to square off in 2018.

On this episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus catch you up on what’s been happening in Washington and around the world since the end of 2017:

  • My button is bigger than yours – President Trump comparing nuclear button sizes to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un 
  • President Trump dissolves controversial voting commission to look into voter fraud

  • New York state sues the Feds on tax changes
  • Trump declares war on former adviser Steve Bannon
