Presidential elections happen every four years. But presidential transitions don’t. The last time we had a Republican president replace a Democratic one was in 2001. To give us some historical context on presidential transitions, and to evaluate how Donald Trump’s transition is going, Avik Roy turns to Tevi Troy, who was the domestic policy director for Mitt Romney’s presidential transition effort in 2012.
Tevi is the author of several books about the presidency, most recently Shall We Wake The President? Two Centuries of Disaster Management From The Oval Office, and also the CEO of the American Health Policy Institute.
