Discussing Culture And Politics With Kevin Williamson

National Review columnist Kevin Williamson was an early critic of Donald Trump's candidacy for president, considering Trump out of step with what many conservatives and advocates for small government stand for. A year after Trump's election to that office, how has the larger political conversation changed, if at all, for advocates of limited government? On this edition of Against the Current, Dan Proft talks to Williamson about the first year of Trump's presidency, his rise to the office and where the president truly falls ideologically. What was Trump's value proposition in getting elected, and should Republicans and conservatives embrace his agenda? They also discuss how different institutions – such as the entertainment industry and the media – drive culture on both the left and the right, influencing political discourse and outcomes.
