Summary:
In early 2016, as it became increasingly apparent that Donald Trump might actually become the Republican nominee, a movement within conservatism formed to stop him: Never Trump. Comprising primarily Republican policy elites and conservative intellectuals, the Never Trumpers saw Trump's stated views as a repudiation of long-standing Republican foreign and domestic policy goals. Just as importantly, they saw him as erratic, mendacious, and unfit - the sort of person the founders warned about, and someone who would bring everlasting shame to the Republican Party.
