If he was governing in accordance with that speech I would be less terrified. Brooks is right that he never mentioned social policies like abortion but it doesn't mean that those sacred cows are out of the republican pasture. He will build a court towards that end. Those things are the marathon, this speech was about the sprint.

True - he didn't mention abortion, just defunded it.

Exactly. This speech should not temper anyone's disdain or distrust for him.
