Jonathan Swan is the national political reporter at Axios and covers the Trump presidency and Republicans in Congress. He was the first to report that the U.S. would pull out of the Paris climate deal, the first to report that Trump would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and the first to report that Trump would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive action policy.
Swan is known for his insider reporting on White House power struggles, with coverage of Oval Office conversations. In 2016, Politico named Swan one of its '16 breakout media stars' of the U.S. presidential campaign. The article described him as one of the few reporters singled out for attention by officials from both Republican and Democratic sides.
