In the year 2016, America lost its last two presidents.
It also lost its first.
Trump won the presidency, but not with the sort of enthusiasm that a majority of voters have given him.
He lost the popular vote by more than two million votes, and his margin of victory was closer to 5 million than it was to 4 million.
It’s hard to imagine how anyone who voted for Trump can ever forgive him for losing, but the fact is that his electoral defeat was an abject defeat.
The Republican Party has a problem, and that problem is that the Republican Party is too busy winning elections to spend its time focusing on the problems that the party has created for itself.
This is why Donald Trump’s victory was so important.
For Republicans, the most significant election outcome since 1984 was Trump’s defeat of the party establishment.
His loss was a major setback, but it was also a major victory for conservatives.
In the months after Trump’s election, conservative commentators like Ann Coulter and Bill Kristol made clear that they would never accept any other Republican president.
The conservative movement has a lot of work to do to turn things around.
If conservatives can’t figure out how to turn the party around, they will have no chance of winning a second term in 2020.
But Trump’s loss was an important setback for the conservative movement because it opened up a new chapter in the history of conservatism.
The first Republican president was William Howard Taft.
He took office in 1921, after an unpopular war.
Taft’s presidency lasted a mere seven months.
He did nothing to improve the lives of the poor or the working class.
He presided over the Great Depression and the Great Recession, but he also presided over a rise in economic inequality that has never been seen since.
Tafts presidency was a complete disaster.
He failed to secure the ratification of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
He tried to cut the Federal Budget by more the $1.6 trillion he had promised, which would have caused a dramatic reduction in the federal budget.
He promised that he would not let the government run out of money.
But in reality, he had more money than he could ever need to spend, and he cut taxes for the rich.
He ended Medicare as we know it, and privatized Medicare.
He refused to negotiate with the Democrats and threatened to cancel the United Nations.
Taets policies are responsible for the economic disaster that the United States has endured since the Great War.
His administration did not try to implement the social programs that Taft had proposed.
He continued the war in Vietnam, despite overwhelming evidence that it was costing the American people more than they could afford.
And he presided over massive cuts to education.
He privatized the military, and made it harder for people to be trained to serve in the military.
But Tafts policies were so disastrous that it took decades for conservatives to finally win a second president.
Taetts administration was a disaster for the party, but that was not because conservatives were averse to winning elections.
They were determined to win elections, and Taft was their favorite target.
Taettts presidency was especially damaging because it put a political and cultural wedge between conservative and moderate Republicans, which was critical to the success of the Republicans.
Tafters presidency was also disastrous.
It put a wedge between moderates and conservatives, which made it hard for moderate Republicans to win election in the future.
It was also harmful to the party because Taft alienated conservative voters by pursuing policies that they did not want, like welfare reform.
Conservatives hated welfare reform because it was the single most successful social program in American history.
The welfare program was created in 1965, and Republicans were furious when it ended.
After Taft left office, conservatives began to worry about the prospects of conservative voters.
In 2020, that fear turned into anger.
They began to blame the Trump administration for the problems of the country, especially because the Trump Administration was so eager to expand the government and the economy.
But conservatives didn’t care much about the government.
They cared more about winning elections and making sure that they never lost again.
The next Republican president will be a candidate whose policies they can’t begrudge him for.
That means that the first conservative president will have to prove that he has a conservative vision for the country and can work with Republicans.
The key to that will be his ability to build consensus.
That’s why Donald J. Trump has had to work so hard to convince voters that he is the kind of leader who will actually build consensus with conservatives.
Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is a great slogan for the new Republican president, but Trump has to make it a reality for his party to win in 2020 and beyond.
It takes a strong leader who can build consensus and trust to bring the party together and win in the 2020 elections.
That kind of leadership will give the GOP a chance to be the dominant party in the
