‘Political Rewind’ replay: Listeners pass judgment on Donald Trump’s first 100 days

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” features a focus group of eight listeners passing judgment on President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.

The 50-minute session was recorded last Thursday evening. Many of them had participated in a previous listener’s panel, but this one was a little more tense – particularly on the issue of illegal immigration.

Health care was something of a surprise. All three pro-Trump panelists said they wouldn’t feel at all betrayed if the president reneged on his promise to repeal Obamacare – if that would bring Democrats in Congress to the table.
