W&M holding discussion on President Trump

Two government experts will give their opinions on the country's first months under the direction of President Donald Trump during an evening hosted Tuesday by the College of William and Mary.

Political columnist Norman Ornstein and W&M government professor John McGlennon will speak during the event.

Ornstein is the college's newest Hunter B. Andrews Fellow in American Politics, which brings a journalist, politician or scholar to campus each year.

A contributing columnist for The Atlantic and columnist for National Journal, Ornstein has the distinction this year. The program has been in place since 1998.

In addition to his duties as a professor, McGlennon is a member of the James City County Board of Supervisors.

Free and open to the public, the conversation between McGlennon and Ornstein will take place at 6:30 p.m. on March 21 in Blow Hall.

There will be an question-and-answer session to close out the evening.

"It is quite wonderful to have Norman Ornstein serve as this year's Hunter B. Andrews Fellow," said W&M President Taylor Reveley. "He has long shed light on the workings of our public order. His thoughts about how American politics and government are evolving these days will be fascinating and valuable for our campus community."

When: Tuesday, March 21, 6:30 p.m.

Where: Blow Hall, Room 201, 262 Richmond Road. Williamsburg
