They’re the first to admit that trying to reorient conservatism and the Republican Party around a president who does not consider himself much of a conservative or a Republican is a bit of a riddle.

Just don’t call it Trumpism. …
American Greatness gives voice to a growing genre of conservative thinking that wants the right to be less oriented to the issues that built the Reagan coalition of social, fiscal and national security conservatives and more focused on the country’s self-interest. CONT.
