Last Thursday, Trump fulfilled a major campaign promise in exiting the Paris climate disaster. But he also confirmed a colossal betrayal in failing to move the Israel embassy to Jerusalem and continuing the maniacal negotiations with the PLO. What gives? Why did conservatives succeed in getting Trump in our camp on one issue and not the other? The answer is simple: Conservatives got in his face and made demands on the climate issue, but not on foreign policy.
In this episode of “The Conservative Conscience,” we discuss how conservatives must speak out and demand change from this administration; otherwise, we won’t get it. Trump has shown a sensitivity to conservative criticism, which is a good thing. We should learn from the Paris success and use it for other issues. The next issue must be immigration and homeland security.
We explore Trump’s opportunity to regain momentum by giving a series of televised addresses and promoting a very specific immigration and homeland security agenda.
