Barbara Perry, presidential studies director at UVA’s nonpartisan Miller Center, has been fascinated by presidents since she was 4 years old and her mother took her to see John F. Kennedy speak one month before he was elected. “I still have somewhat of a childlike vision of the presidency,” she said. “I know my faith is not misplaced. I know we have had heroic presidents. Even the ones who were not great still were, by and large, great people.”

“The Trump people have clearly bought into the model of harsh enforcement. They apparently think, ‘We’ll be tough, and a lot of people will leave on their own,’” said David Martin, a UVA immigration law professor. “They believe they’ll win in the court of public opinion. I’m not sure about that.”

The question is whether they take specific actions designed to curb freedom of the press – something Trump hasn't done, at least so far. Nicole Renee Hemmer, assistant professor at UVA’s Miller Center, said "the rhetoric is not yet cause for panic," but journalists need to push back and explain that "their work is a vital component of democratic governance and the system of checks and balances, especially given Donald Trump's autocratic tendencies."

The Institute has been life-changing for many. I think that’s one reason their bond is so strong.”

Defending his stalled immigration ban, Trump said, "There was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was nothing." Forged documents and passports are a concern in some countries, but that doesn’t give Trump license to say there is no system. "No system is foolproof," David Martin, a UVA law professor who’s previously held posts at DHS and the State Department, has told us.

It’ll be up to Republicans to decide whether to force Trump out. And that won’t happen unless they see him as ruining their party as well as the nation. “The only incentive for Republicans to act – with or without the cabinet – is the same incentive Republicans had in 1974 to insist on Nixon’s resignation,” Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia told me. “The incentive is survival.”
