Washington, DC, the capital of the United States, is dominated in many ways by the institutions and activities of the United States government. The federal presence has major impacts not only on the national and the international scales, but also on everyday life and the local economy of the District of Columbia (DC) itself and the rest of the DC metropolitan area. The presentation discusses some of the micro-geographical impacts of the national policies of the Donald Trump administration upon the political and economic interests of the 6 million people who live and work in the DC metropolitan area. Recent effects of the partial government shutdown highlight the problematic implications of the "colonial" status of the District of Columbia itself.
