Conservative Writers Unite for Anti-Trump Manifesto

The conservative magazine National Review published a special issue Friday uniformly opposing Donald Trump’s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, one week before the first primary caucus is held. “Against Trump,” the issue’s headline blares, featuring an array of right-wing writers with editorials explaining how the real-estate magnate and reality-TV star would do irreparable damage to conservatism. The issue features essays from talk-radio figures like Glenn Beck, Michael Medved, and Erick Erickson; neoconservative writers Bill Kristol and John Podhoretz; and TV pundits Dana Loesch and Katie Pavlich.
