Tim Alberta - American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump — in conversation with Jonathan Swan

Upcoming Event
Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The chief political correspondent for Politico, Alberta details how the Republican Party’s internal crises following the end of the George W. Bush administration, along with a growing national sense of economic and social disruption, combined to put Trump in the White House. Drawing on exclusive interviews with figures including Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and Trump himself, Alberta traces the GOP’s search for direction after Bush, the right’s rebound during the Obama years, and the GOP’s split into two competing factions—a rift that opened the way for the businessman-turned-politician who announced his candidacy in the summer of 2015. Alberta will be in conversation with Jonathan Swan, national political reporter at Axios.
