LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton discussed President Trump’s first 100 days in office before a tamer Arkansas audience than he has seen in other recent public forums.

Cotton was interviewed Wednesday in Little Rock by the Clinton School of Public Service’s dean, Skip Rutherford.

Cotton said he would give Trump an A-plus for some efforts, like the Syrian airstrike. But he gave Trump an “incomplete” for aborted efforts to overhaul the health care system. Immigration reform and North Korea were discussed as well.

Rutherford emphasized several times that he wanted the exchange between himself and the audience to be respectful.

Cotton faced a combative crowd at a raucous town hall held in Springdale in February. He held a joint town-hall-style meeting Monday in Little Rock with U.S. Rep. French Hills.
