Executive Power in the Trump Administration
Speeches & Presentations
Our panel of senior-level Trump administration officials with Texas ties will examine the pros and cons of the administration’s use of executive power. From the “travel ban” to immigration restrictions to regulatory reform, the Trump administration forcefully deployed executive power while often resisting aggressive legislative overseers. Did the administration shatter important norms governing the Department of Justice and other agencies or did it properly seek to restore executive power to politically accountable officials? This panel addresses the successes, shortcomings, and lessons learned from an eventful four years.
