Let’s learn and discuss the American presidency, as well as President Trump.

The 2016 presidential election was one of the most shocking upsets in U.S. history.  Since then, the United States is deeply divided, and President Trump is loved and hated in about equal measure by Americans. In the American Presidencycourse, we aim to better understand the politics of the presidency, by utilizing a motivating example of current president Donald Trump.  We will, of course, learn from a rigorously-written textbook.  However, a special emphasis will be given to writing essays and conducting original research.
