America in the Trump Era: The Future of the GOP

Lecture Series

February 16, 2017

6:15-7:30PM

Assembly Hall

With the 2016 campaign over and a controversial first month for the Trump presidency, the Republican Party is at a crossroads. The GOP controls all three branches of government, yet many Republic voters are divided in their support of the new administration. Can the GOP reconcile the factions within the party? What do these tensions mean for the future of the Party? And, what are the implications for the 2018 elections?

Featuring former republican congressman Jack Kingston, editor at large for the Weekly Standard William Kristol, and former republican congressman Vin Weber. Moderating this discussion is IOP Visiting Fellow Robert Costa.

This event is part of “America in the Trump Era,” the IOP’s look at the changes – cultural, policy, media, and otherwise – coming under a Trump administration. Register here.
