2018 will be remembered for cruelty, Dudziak tells Politico

Politico asked 16 historians how the past year will be viewed by coming generations. "2018 will be remembered as the year of cruelty," writes Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law Mary L. Dudziak. From child deaths at the border to President Trump's refusal to sanction Saudi Arabia for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, it was a brutal year, Dudziak said. "The list goes on and on--there is too much cruelty for one paragraph. Congress, and the American people, aided the president's cruelty by failing to do whatever it would take to stop him."
