Whether he is speaking from the White House podium or on a Sunday morning talk show, Marc Short is a straight shooter. His political and business insights help audiences make sense of the most complicated issues facing our country. Quick on his feet and willing to engage a broad range of questions, Marc is both winsome and informative. The former chief of staff to Mike Pence and Director of Legislative Affairs in Donald Trump’s White House, Marc helped advance the most significant achievements of the current Administration.
President Trump is shaking things up and delivering on his promise to change the way Washington operates.
The disruption in our nation’s politics is often criticized by the punditry, but in its first eighteen months, this Administration delivered the largest tax cuts in history, confirmed a record number of judges, passed legislation to rebuild the military, rolled back thousands of onerous regulations, and ushered in the lowest unemployment numbers in generations.
Will the tax relief and deregulatory agenda continue to spur the markets to new heights? What impact will the President’s trade agenda have on the global economy? What can we expect in the upcoming mid-term elections and beyond? What are the winning strategies for working with this unconventional President?
As the White House Director of Legislative Affairs, Marc Short served as the primary link between the Trump Administration and Capitol Hill and as a leading spokesman for the conservative agenda. A former Chief of Staff for Mike Pence in the House leadership, and for Kay Bailey Hutchison in the Senate, no one understands the politics, the process or the personalities better than Marc.
The Impact of the Disruption Administration
Many pundits and academics still can’t come to grips with the Trump presidency. It is often dismissed as an electoral mistake or product of foreign collusion. Congressional leaders and Beltway commentators get upset when norms are not upheld. Nothing about this White House is “business as usual” and it’s unpredictable, to say the least.
Marc Short will explain why it is also exactly what the voters wanted. In both substance and style, President Trump is delivering results amidst the disruption every single day. The courts, the economy, and the military are all better off because of it.
