Conversations on the Green 


What happens to Trumpism after Trump, whenever that moment comes?

Although the GOP establishment remains firmly in President Trump’s thrall, many traditional Republican constituencies are fleeing the party.

The conventional coalitions that once came together to power both the Republican and Democratic national parties are splitting apart as the president casts aside political principles, defies political orthodoxy and sells his personality.

That’s turned political angst into the national malaise and left many at both ends of the political spectrum feeling disenfranchised, in effect, politically homeless.

“Conversations On the Green” will explore the post Trump prospects of the GOP and the two party system on June 16 with three celebrated members of what once was the Republican intelligentsia:

Republican strategist and MSNBC commentator Susan Del Percio, former Republican Congressman David Jolley and Bret Stephens, the Pulitzer Prize winning columnist for The New York Times.

A renowned contrarian and former editor of The Jerusalem Post, Stephens rocketed to fame as the neo-conservative foreign-affairs columnist and deputy editorial page editor at The Wall Street Journal. As head of the paper’s editorial pages for its European and Asian editions, his voice ricochet through capitals around the globe and he earned a Pulitzer for commentary for his 2012 columns “on U.S. foreign policy and domestic politics, often enlivened by a contrarian twist.” He moved to The Times two years ago.

Susan Del Percio, a political strategist and campaign advisor, regularly appears on network television as a partisan analyst. The principal behind Susan Del Percio Strategies, a political consulting firm, she has served as a media spokeswoman on both political and corporate campaigns, a special advisor to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2014 and a key member of Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s administration, where she was deputy commissioner for finance and administration.

David Jolly is an attorney, former lobbyist and politician who served for three years starting in 2004 as the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, where he previously was the general counsel to his predecessor, Representative Bill Young. He won the race for Young's seat in a special election and was reelected a year later with 75 percent of the vote but was defeated two years ago by former Governor Charlie Crist. Since leaving public office, Jolly has become a leading Republican critic of President Trump and last September, with his wife, left the party.
