Democrats and liberals hoping to build a movement against the policies of President Donald Trump should take a page out of the Tea Party’s 2010 movement and focus on “policies that build power,” says Vanessa Williamson, the co-author of the 2012 book The Tea Party and the Remaking of Republican Conservatism. Like the Tea Party in 2010, anti-Trump activists plan to storm lawmakers’ offices and town hall meetings during Congress’ President’s Day recess and Williamson explains what it means for politics and for governance on Capitol Hill.
