Redefining the Presidency

Joining Nicolle Wallace’s MSNBC program Deadline: White House, veteran columnist and MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle says of the Trump Administration: “The irony is that they came into office with Steve Bannon's theory about redoing all elements of government: Downsizing the State Department, reordering gender equality in the military, destroying the existing health care bill and coming up with another health care piece of legislation. But, what's happened is that every day, every single day, either by tweets, actual verbiage or actual action, Donald Trump has redefined and downsized the presidency both in Congress and, I think, among large elements of the American public. I don't know that the definition of the presidency and the way people think of the presidency will remain the same.” Listen to more of the conversation here.
