Unmuzzling the Pastors
Transatlantic Ties in a Populist Era
Michael Doran & Peter Rough
Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Blake Seitz about the Johnson amendment before discussing how populist politics is affecting America’s relations with Europe.
First, Blake Seitz, assistant editor at the Washington Free Beacon, explains what the Johnson amendment is, why it matters, and why the Trump administration wants to “get rid of, and totally destroy” it.
Then, Michael Doran, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, takes a look at how Europe is grappling with rising populism, and explains why many of Trump’s domestic policy priorities are resonating across the Atlantic as well.
