Chris Christie

Hosted by Douglas Blackmon

More than a year into the presidency of Donald Trump, the Republican Party is at a crucial juncture. Party leaders and the president have broken from years of insistence on stringent spending limits and deficit reductions and instead embraced budget increases, tax cuts, and a new brand of economic populism. Is this a temporary deviation for the GOP, or is it the emergence of a profoundly different American conservatism? Few national figures have wrestled more directly with those competing visions than former New Jersey Governor CHRIS CHRISTIE, who made a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. He joins us for this week’s episode of American Forum.
