Biden's Big Week, Christian Nationalism At CPAC, And A Mayor Who Is A Horse

The NPR Politics Podcast

This week, the president all but secured the passage of his major policy priorities, oversaw a strike that took out a top terrorist, and got a strong economic report as gas prices fell. But tensions with China continue to rise after Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

And Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán headlined a conservative political conference in Dallas. The authoritarian-minded leader has become a darling of the American right, echoing many of the same social priorities — while often veering into outright anti-Semitism and racism.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, political reporter Deepa Shivaram, White House correspondent Franco Ordoñez, political correspondent Ashley Lopez, and media correspondent David Folkenflik.
