NBC News quotes Fried in analysis of year since Trump’s election

Amy Fried, a political scientist at the University of Maine, was quoted in an NBC News article analyzing Donald Trump’s presidency. Three characteristics have defined Trump’s transition and presidency since his November 2016 election win: conservative celebrations, controversies and chaos, the article states. Fried pointed to Trump’s lack of major legislative victories. There hasn’t been a modern president, she said, “who pays so little attention to what is needed to be effective at governing and has delivered so little legislatively.”
