It has been one year since Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. Not surprisingly, this milestone has elicited every version of retrospective analysis you might imagine. Broadcast journalists fall over themselves to reach out to the base and the resistance alike. Experts are invoked, data is described, and pundits contort […]
