Bill Kristol On Trump, The 2020 RNC And The Campaign Ahead
Last night, in a 70-minute speech to nearly 2000 loyalists seated tightly on the South Lawn of the White House, Donald Trump accepted the nomination of the Republican Party to seek re-election as President. It is a party he has changed dramatically, and some fear, irrevocably.
Joining Tom with analysis of Mr. Trump’s speech and a recap of the four-day Republican National Convention is conservative political analyst Bill Kristol. From 1985 to 1993, Mr. Kristol served in the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, and went on to found the influential conservative journal, The Weekly Standard. He is currently an editor-at-large at The Bulwark, an independent journal of political analysis; a co-director of the conservative political advocacy group, Defending Democracy Together; and the host of Conversations with Bill Kristol, his online series of interviews with leading figures in American public life.
Bill Kristol joins us on Zoom from his home in northern Virginia.
