To what extent should the Republican party be organized behind “MAGA” principles? Henry Olsen joins Heritage President Kevin Roberts to analyze the current state of the GOP and what we can expect from an already tumultuous 118th Congress.

Henry Olsen, is a Washington Post columnist and a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. His work focuses on how America’s political order is being upended by populist challenges from the left and the right. He also studies populism’s impact on other democracies in the developed world.

And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation.

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
