Where Should Republicans Go After Trump?

The New York Times asked me to write an opinion piece for them on where I think the GOP should go after Donald Trump. Here you go.

And yes, I do see the humor of me writing in the Times.

Here is a small excerpt:

To win back the trust of the people, the Republicans need to recognize that the people have answers. The bulk of both major-party candidates’ support comes from voters who hate the other candidate more. Voters are being held hostage by hollow promises from both parties that Supreme Court nominations and Washington power will make their lives better.

Yet the founders never meant for presidential elections to be struggles over the Supreme Court. Nor was Washington to be the center of all solutions. Republicans need to focus less on Washington and more on fostering local community.
