22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, a panel discussion on The First 100 Days of Donald Trump - President Donald J. Trump just finished his first 100 days, the time period where a President has the most power and influence. Prior to his inauguration, President Trump put forth an ambitious agenda: clean up corruption in Washington, D.C., protect American workers, and restore security and the order of law.  How does President Trump's first 100 days compare with previous Presidents? What can we distill from his actions in these first 100 days? And can - and should - we judge any President by what is or isn't accomplished during this time? Panelists include: David B. Cohen, Ph.D, Professor of Political Science and Fellow, Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at The University of Akron; Don Gonyea, National Political Correspondent, NPR; Jessica Wehrman, Washington Correspondent, The Columbus Dispatch. aThis conversation will be moderated by ideastream® reporter/producer Darrielle Snipes.
