It has been an eventful first year for the Trump administration – regardless of where you are on the political spectrum.

And, while we’re coming up on “year in review” season, we have two conversations on the president from slightly different perspectives.

We start with Scott Adams. He’s the creator of the Dilbert comic and author of the new book "Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter." Adams looks at president, and candidate Trump before that, through the lens of persuasion.

Now, from someone who didn’t plan to get involved in the presidential election to someone who’s made a career of chronicling presidents.

Robert Dallek has written about Richard Nixon, JFK and Lyndon Johnson, among others. His new book is called "Franklin D. Roosevelt: A Political Life."
