The Republican Party in the Age of Trump
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a one-time presidential hopeful, shares his perspectives on his party and on the president — a figure who, he says, is both a corrosive influence on today’s political discourse but also a net positive for the economy and for the right. In recent months, Christie has shared that he turned down any number of jobs offered by Trump’s White House. He also wrote a book earlier this year in which he excoriates much of the White House staff (called “amateurs, grifters, weaklings” by the president). How does Christie see his friend, the president, as well as the party he calls his own? And who does he think will win in 2020? The Atlantic’s editor in chief, Jeffrey Goldberg, promises an entertaining and wide-ranging interview. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Chris Christie.
