David Azerrad is the Director, B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics and AWC Family Foundation Fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Azerrad and Domenech discuss President Trump’s first 100 days in office, the definition of “Trumpism”, and the differing schools of thought within the conservative movement.
“On the executive front, [Trump] is delivering. Working with Congress is a complicated matter, especially given the tensions within the Republican party,” Azerrad said. “Given the weakness of Congress in the modern era, they’re definiltey looking for direction from the President.”
Azerrad defines the “Trumpism” movement and responds to the critiques who believe the term is meaningless. “A temperament that is bold and aggressive and springs from this view of the world that is anchored in conflict. Conflict between nations, and conflict between the classes at home,” he said.
