The Christian Science Monitor discussed Trumpism and the future of the Republican party (Why Trumpism is Here to Stay), interviewing Brandice Canes-Wrone on the logic of Trump's positions and coalition in contrast with the party:
Trumpism itself has a much more anti-globalist ideology than traditional Republicanism. It’s more generous in terms of social insurance; he’s not trying to significantly reform Social Security or Medicare, or even indicating any interest in doing that.... Its [conservative judicial philosophy and approach to taxes and regulation] are consistent, but the anti-globalism and even the kind of strong preservation of Social Security and Medicare and the willingness to spend a lot during the pandemic, you could say anyone would do that. But with Trump, you don’t sense the kind of hesitation you might find with a more traditional Republican.
