DONALD TRUMP has emerged from purdah at a meeting of conservative activists, hinting at another presidential run. Even in defeat the former president retains control of a party united in antipathy to liberal elites. Where does cleaving to culture leave Republicans?

We look at the legacy of Rush Limbaugh, who pioneered Trump’s brand of anti-elitism, and speak to Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, one of America’s most popular Republicans.

John Prideaux, our US editor, hosts with New York bureau chief Charlotte Howard, and Jon Fasman, US digital editor. Runtime: 39 min
