After serving as a foreign policy advisor to three GOP presidential candidates and working for decades in conservative media, Max Boot has renounced the Republican party. In his new book, "The Corrosion of Conservatism," Boot condemns his former party's "embrace of white nationalism and know-nothingism" and calls for its defeat in the midterm elections. Boot joins Forum to talk about what he thinks can be done to salvage conservatism and build a center-right party to counteract extremism.
