Trump Summer Preview

President Trump’s young administration faces a possible make-or-break season this upcoming summer. How the president handles the upcoming events could determine the rest of his administration. Here are three of the biggest events coming up.

  1. Meeting with Putin: The Kremlin and the White House have been discussing a possible July meeting between the two presidents at the G20 Summit in Hamburg. Trump had expressed hope for a warmer relationship between the world’s two largest nuclear powers, but a deteriorating global situation between the two countries has seen relations reach one of their lowest points. As Trump’s campaign is under investigation for colluding with the Russian government, he may find it politically impossible to pursue better relations with Moscow. But as Trump himself said of Putin, “Maybe we’ll have a good relationship. Maybe we’ll have a horrible relationship. Maybe we’ll have a relationship right in the middle.”
  2. Comey Testimony: Ousted FBI Director James Comey had been scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a public hearing after Memorial Day. But that may be put on hold as the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller has limited congressional access to various aspects of the Russia investigation. If Comey does end up testifying, his remarks could either vindicate or damn the Trump administration, given the serious allegations surrounding Comey’s dismissal.
  3. GA-06 Special Election: So far, Democrats have struck out in their attempts to steal an election in Republican districts, but their best chance will come on June 20th in Georgia. National Democrats have poured millions of dollars into a race that many have come to see as a referendum on the first six months of Trump’s presidency. (They’ve also said that about every race, so far, and Republicans have won them all.) Stealing the congressional seat would largely be a symbolic victory for Democrats, given the large GOP majority in the House of Representatives. But a victory in a Republican-heavy district could signal trouble for Trump in 2018.
