When President Trump promised to “drain the swamp,” he rallied a nation tired of lobbyists, politicians, and bureaucrats that seemed more interested in creating regulations, catering to special interest groups, and pursuing their own self-interest rather than faithfully representing the American people. However, there is much unexplained about the “swamp,” – how did it come to be? How can it be fully drained? What worked, and what didn’t? Join with TPPF’s Chuck DeVore as he hosts a candid discussion and book signing with Larry Schweikart, author of “Dragonslayers: Six Presidents and Their War with the Swamp.” Schweikart is an expert in the history of attempts to combat DC’s entrenched politicians, lobbyists, and bureaucrats and provides a unique perspective and view on the history of the Swamp.
Complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees, and a book sale and signing will be hosted by the author following the program. You are also welcome to tune in to the event online via livestream.
