“We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism," Kristol told the publication. 

Kristol's comments were part of a report by the Times which listed potential Republican Trump challengers in the 2020 presidential election. The list included Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Vice President Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PenceFederal judge to hear case of Proud Boy alleged Jan. 6 rioter seeking release from jail The Hill's 12:30 Report - Presented by Facebook - Dems attempt to tie government funding, Ida relief to debt limit Trump lawyer offered six-point plan for Pence to overturn election: book MORE

Kristol has proven to be one of the fiercest conservative Trump critics, frequently criticizing the president's rhetoric as well as his policies. 

The editor went as far as comparing the Trump administration to the decline of the Roman Empire last month.
