Charles Cooke: Standing For Conservatism In The Age Of Trump

Before Donald Trump’s election, many conservatives had reservations about his commitment to a limited government. Charles Cooke, editor of National Review Online, has been one of the leading voices for skepticism of Trump’s small government credentials, while still giving credit to Trump for his early accomplishments.

On the most recent edition of Against the Current — a content series devoted to in-depth topical conversations between Dan Proft and distinguished guests that are masters in their field of study — Proft sits down with Cooke to discuss conservatism in the age of President Trump.

They also discuss diversity at National Review and how conservatives should be defending their values.

The discussion covers everything from defending free markets to free speech, the second amendment, social values and much more.

Watch and listen to Proft and Cooke’s conversation now right here.
