America 2017 and Beyond: What Can We Expect From The Trump Presidency

Drawing on his many years of journalism experience, Jim Angle explains how Trump won and Clinton lost, as well as the new administration's priorities, and how difficult they may be to pull off. The Republicans hope to reduce taxes and eliminate Obamacare early on, which will be tricky to keep from pulling the rug out from under most people who now have health care through the system. At the same time, Trump has to form a functioning government, which is no small feat. President Trump also intends to unravel may of the 2000 regulations Obama put in place. The real trick will be able to create jobs without driving the deficit up further, which Obama doubled in 8 years. The day of reckoning is coming on our debts and especially entitlements which, along with interest on the debt, will soak up all federal revenues by 2025, leaving all other functions of government to be funded with borrowed money. That is the reality Trump and any future Presidents will face. Finally, Jim will offer his insight into the remake both parties are undergoing as a result of the election. With great humor and insight, he shares with audiences’ his analysis on what’s going on at the White House and on Capitol Hill.

Wine, Dine and Politics

Most know Jim Angle as a Correspondent of FOX News and longtime veteran journalist; however, you may not be aware that the media speaker has been a wine connoisseur for over a decade, with over 2,000 bottles in his home walk-in cellar. The thing is, wines are a lot like politicians. Different wines appeal to different audiences depending on taste, atmosphere and much more. Some politicians come on strong like a giant Syrah or Shiraz from California, the Rhone or Australia. Other candidates are subtler like Southern California pinot noirs-- they have to be coaxed and their nuances appreciated. In a new, witty, fun and informative keynote, Jim Angle shares his love of wine and politics. Treat your audience to an informative presentation on vino that also works to highlight current events of our day. Jim offers insight into the wine industry, how much the wine market has grown, wine buying strategies, and even what countries or regions offer the best deals. He offers tips on entertaining with wine, how to have tastings over dinner, and which grapes are fun to try. During the political speaking engagement, Jim also shares his stories about characters in the wine business, and provides humorous & insightful anecdotes of political figures from his experiences as one of Washington’s most respected news journalists. It’s the perfect non-partisan/non-polarizing presentation for election year 2016.

The Oil And Gas Industry under the Trump Administration

Jim Angle has extensively covered American energy independence, natural gas production and energy from shale, all aspects of the energy industry and issues within the EPA for more than a decade. Jim Angle speaks about the fossil fuel industry is enjoying a remarkable resurgence as its executives and lobbyists shape President-elect Donald Trump’s policy agenda and staff his administration. The oil, gas and coal industries are amassing power throughout Washington — from Foggy Bottom, where ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson is Trump’s nominee to be secretary of state, to domestic regulatory agencies including the departments of Energy and Interior as well as the Environmental Protection Agency. But the industry’s quick power surge during the first month of Trump’s transition has alarmed environmentalists, who fear the new administration will undo what they see as a decade of progress in combating climate change. On Capitol Hill, Democrats plan to use whatever power they have in the minority of both chambers to serve as an aggressive check on the executive branch’s power, especially on energy and environmental policies. Jim Angles can give your audience a detailed perspective on current energy issues, as well as in-depth analysis about the future of oil and gas.
