With Trump set to turn in the keys to the White House, an unprecedented period in American political history is poised to conclude. The transition is setting off a mad scramble for control of a Republican Party that for so long has reflected the domineering image of one man — and might even still in the years ahead. Who emerges from the warring factions and familial rivalries that proliferated and quietly festered during Trump’s presidency could determine the fate of the GOP for a generation, and the first hint of what’s to come begins with the 2024 campaign to crown the first Republican nominee, and national party leader, of the post-Trump era.

With Trump’s exit, whenever that occurs, a singular era in American political history will end — and the Republican party, whose identity had for so long been centered around one man, will be forced to redefine itself for the future.

AFTER TRUMP tells the story of a GOP under — and after — the 45th president, and all of those jousting for influence over the party’s direction in the wake of Donald Trump.
