Attorney Robert McWhirter, an award-winning author and Bill of Rights expert, leads a discussion on The Constitution v. Donald J. Trump.
As President Trump claims to "make America great again," he finds himself bumping up against the greatest charter of government on earth: The United States Constitution. This continues as his presidency progresses beyond the first hundred days, showing no sign of abating. This presentation and question-and-answer session looks at what the United States Constitution really says about what Donald Trump wants to do. Copies of McWhirter's book Bills, Quills, and Stills
will be available at Changing Hands bookstores.
