Taubman Center: Trump, the Administrative Presidency, and Federalism
"The authors of “Trump, the Administrative Presidency, and Federalism” discuss their book, which shows how Donald Trump took unprecedented steps to undermine and otherwise reshape domestic policy programs through executive action. But the book also emphasizes how the forces of federalism, especially state attorneys general, governors, and legislatures, have often undercut Trump’s executive initiatives and reduced their impact on who gets what from government in the health care, climate, and education arenas.

Readers interested in the institutions of American democracy and the nation’s progress (or lack thereof) in dealing with pressing policy problems will find deep insights in this talk. These include careful examination of whether the states, in combination with the courts, can check the threat to the rule of law and democracy posed by an administrative presidency on steroids."
