As President Trump neared his first 100 days in office, I called the celebrity professor who predicted Trump’s win and has accurately forecast the outcome of every U.S. election since 1984 to ask him whether he still believes in his other famous forecast — that Trump will be impeached.

Allan Lichtman, a distinguished professor of history at American University, had forecast that Trump would be impeached since months before last year’s elections, and has now published a book titled “The Case for Impeachment.”

I was curious to ask him whether Trump’s latest policy reversals from some of his most outlandish populist stands will diminish the chance of an impeachment. Lichtman conceded to me that, over the past week, Trump has “changed for the better,” although he added that it’s unclear how long that will last.

In recent days, Trump has walked away from his love affair with Russian President Vladimir Putin, has reversed his previous claims that China was a currency manipulator, and made a 180-degree turn on his previous claims that NATO was obsolete, and that the U.S. Export-Import Bank should be closed.
