Event description

Description

Donald Trump got elected with a declaration of war on his own party. Now, the grassroots is going one way and the establishment another, leaving the GOP with an epic identity crisis. And worse, little by way of accomplishments. What does this say for the future of a party that controls all the levers of power in Washington, but cannot seem to get anything done? And what does it even mean to be a Republican these days?

Special Guest via Skype: Republican political consultant Katie Packer Beeson, deputy campaign manager for GOP nominee Mitt Romney in 2012; founder of the anti-Trump super PAC Our Principles PAC in 2016
