Conservatism, the Republican Party, and President Trump

Despite controlling both the White House and the US Congress, the Republican Party has had a bumpy ride for the first few months of the Trump administration. With a president who is not a traditional party standard-bearer, can the party and the White House get in alignment on priorities and core values? Will President Trump and the party’s traditional conservatives ever get in sync — or at least make some deals? And what impact will the ongoing fissures over core values and ideology have on the Republican Party — internally and with the public at large?
