Trump's First Year

Will Politics, Policy and the Presidency Ever be the Same?

Trump's First Year

Watch the Conversation

After one year of Donald Trump, one thing is certain: journalism is and will never be the same. This event gave a front-row view of the Trump presidency.

Covering this White House is an unprecedented challenge. From non-stop scoops to divided politics, the public distrust of the media is on a scale we’ve never seen before. The White House press secretary and correspondents talked about what it is like on the front lines and what the media is and isn’t getting right.
