Join George Edwards, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Texas A&M for: Is Donald Trump an Effective Leader?

Donald Trump took office possessing well-honed promotional talents sharpened over a lifetime of marketing himself and his brand. He also has years of experience in making deals and claimed to be an especially able negotiator. Thus, he claimed to be uniquely qualified to lead the country, unite the public and overcome gridlock in Congress. How successful has the president been in accomplishing these tasks? Leading presidential scholar George Edwards will evaluate the president’s performance and place it in a broader perspective on presidential leadership.
