President Trump gave a terrific speech in Warsaw, Poland on the shared values of Western Civilization and its clash with the Islamic world.  The problem is, much like with domestic policy, the specific policy outcomes and the personnel of this administration don’t match up with the rhetoric of the president himself.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we develop a theme of how Trump’s conservative rhetoric is often voided out by policy outcomes from liberal advisors and cabinet members. Particularly as it relates to national security and understanding the clash of civilizations, Trump’s National Security Council, headed by H.R. McMaster, is rowing the boat in the exact opposite direction.  We discuss some of the specific policy dichotomies between the NSC staff and the president and how conservatives must not get distracted by rhetoric.  They must demand action, as Trump himself said during his Inaugural Address.

No issue embodies the departure of Trump from his Inaugural Address than his embrace of the ethanol lobby. We explain how Trump embracing the ethanol mandate is a colossal missed opportunity to harness his populist agenda in a way that helps consumers and improves free markets.  We also explain how Trump’s rhetoric and campaign promises on Obamacare deviated from his actions.  The moral of the story is, once Trump delivers a good speech, work for conservatives has only begun.    

Key Quotes:

“We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.  The time for empty talk is over.  Now arrives the hour of action.” ~ President Trump, Inaugural Address
