George Packer in The Atlantic

In The Atlantic, George Packer tells the story of how President Trump is “destroying the civil service and bending the government to his will.” Through interviews of (former) government employees, Packer paints a picture of a president who is winning his fight against the ‘deep state’.

The John Adams Institute hosted George Packer in 2019 to discuss his book Our Man: Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century. You can watch the event through the link below or on our YouTube page.
