Trump’s ‘help wanted’ sign
In the News

May 09, 2017
"Beyond the marquee difficulties of President Trump's early months in office — the bollixed-up travel ban, the Michael Flynn debacle and so on — is an unsexy but important example in the fundamental realm of governance. By that we mean staffing the administration. Trump has filled fewer than 5% of 556 key executive branch positions in the federal government, well below other incoming presidents and an underperformance that goes to the core of competence."

In the News

Trump still has a lot of positions to fill
In the News

April 28, 2017
"President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office have been extraordinarily newsworthy, from the ongoing investigations into Russia’s contacts with his inner circle to courts repeatedly halting his immigration-related executive orders to the missile strike on Syria. But in the midst of all the action, Trump has quietly failed to accomplish a mundane but critical task facing every new president: to appoint people to fill 4,000 job openings in the federal government."

100 days of Donald Trump
In the News

April 28, 2017
"VICE News Tonight takes an unfiltered look at Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, in stories told by the people who have the most to gain or lose from Trump’s administration. We spoke with people who are truly hopeful and feel validated. With people whose safety and liberty is at stake. And we talked to the insiders who understand what it’s like to work with the most powerful person in the world. After all, the first hundred days (and the next hundred, and the next hundred after that) are not about what the president says in 140 characters. What matters is the impact of his policies on people across the country and the world."

Donald Trump’s first 100 days
In the News

April 27, 2017

"AT A rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania last October, Donald Trump presented his “100-day action plan”, a long list of goals to reform government. Achieving these was always a tall order, and the president has certainly kept busy. He is expected to sign 30 executive orders by the end of his first 100 days in office (see chart), more than any other president since Harry Truman."

Donald Trump’s first 100 days: The worst on record
In the News

April 26, 2017

"Franklin D. Roosevelt invented the idea of a president's first 100 days. Roosevelt was actually referring to the first 100 days of a special Congressional session to fight the Great Depression, as Robert Speel of Penn State notes. But the idea soon came to mean the 100 days that start on Jan. 20 and that, for President Trump, will end on Saturday."

Trump drags feet on political appointees, lags behind predecessors
In the News

April 26, 2017

"Compared with his recent predecessors and with little time until his 100th day on Saturday, Trump lags behind their century totals in filling the high-level government positions that are necessary to set agency policies. Given his policies, it’s tempting to say that’s a good thing. But politicos provide the direction and guidance needed to get work done. Even an administration with harmful policies needs its people in place for government to work as it should.

April 25, 2017
"The Senate has confirmed 26 of Trump’s picks for his Cabinet and other top posts. But for 530 other vacant senior-level jobs requiring Senate confirmation, the president has advanced just 37 nominees, according to data tracked by The Washington Post and the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition. These posts include the deputy secretaries and undersecretaries, chief financial officers, ambassadors, general counsels, and heads of smaller agencies who run the government day-to-day."

"Donald Trump is not wrong: Judging a presidency on its first 100 days is an inherently ridiculous exercise. There is, however, a less ridiculous way to assess Trump’s first few months, and he does not fare well."
