Alisyn Camerota, co-anchor of CNN's "New Day," moderates a discussion about President Trump and republicans at the Aspen Ideas Festival.

Despite controlling both the White House and Congress, the Republican Party has had a bumpy ride in the first months of the Trump administration. Trump isn’t a traditional party standard-bearer. So, can the party and the White House get in alignment on priorities and core values? What impact will the divide over ideology have on the Republican Party? Featuring Bill Kristol, editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard, Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor for National Review, McKay Coppins, staff writer at The Atlantic, and Alisyn Camerota, co-anchor of CNN’s morning show “New Day.”
