With President Donald Trump hitting the 100-day in office milestone he touted so profoundly on the campaign trail, the “Michigan Matters” roundtable of Denise Ilitch, Cliff Russell and Lena Epstein joined host Carol Cain to dissect the marker and impact on his presidency.

Epstein, who served as Co-Chair of the Trump Michigan campaign, said it didn’t mean much and he had much more time to confront issues like the Affordable Care Act.

Russell, who hosts a weekday show 2-4 pm on 910 AM, disagreed and said he had talked so much about getting things done — including healthcare and building of the wall in Mexico — which have not been resolved — that it will cause issues for him.

Ilitch, a Democrat who serves as regent at the University of Michigan, said Trump’s performance would plague him as his presidency continued.

On other issues, the panel discussed Jim Harbaugh and the UM football team trip to Rome where they met with Pope Francis this week. Harbaugh also presented him with a UM helmet and running shoes.
