GU Politics Fellows Analyze Changing Political Landscape

by Matthew Trunko

In his first week as President of the United States, Donald Trump has changed how the White House communicates to the American people through his ceaseless tweeting and direct rebuking of media outlets.

In light of this new political landscape, the McCourt School of Public Policy’s Institute of Politics and Public Service’s spring class of fellows, which includes political journalists, advisers and leaders, hope to develop a better understanding of what Trump’s presidency means for American democracy moving forward.

The fourth class of fellows includes Marlon Marshall, former director of state campaigns and political engagement for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, President of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist, Senior Washington Correspondent and co-author of Politico Playbook Anna Palmer, Jen Psaki, who served as director of communications and senior advisor to former President Barack Obama and a media consultant for the 2016 Trump campaign, Tony Sayegh.

In an interview with The Hoya on Friday, the incoming class of GU Politics fellows shared their thoughts on the recent campaign, the implications of Trump’s communication methods and how they plan to use their discussion sessions with students to learn about the perspectives of the younger generations.
