President Trump has now served two years in office – anywhere from 25% to 95% of his full tenure, depending on which channel you watch. And with a news cycle moving faster than ever before, it can be difficult to separate which stories have staying power and which stories are much ado about nothing.

So, two years into the Trump administration, what have been the most significant moments? Where has President Trump delivered on his promises to voters in 2016? How has a newly divided Congress changed the relationship between the legislative and executive branches? And how does the press fit into the equation?

For answers to these questions and more, join the IOP as we welcome a panel of distinguished journalists to discuss the Trump administration’s first two years.
