Is Donald Trump Conservative? Does It Matter If He Isn’t?

One of the big criticisms of Donald Trump from the right during the campaign is that he wasn’t a conservative.

Trump embraced many policies, such as his proposal for a new childcare entitlementand his promise to outspend Hillary on an infrastructure stimulus, that made him seem somewhat liberal to many of us. After a week in office, it’s still hard to tell whether Trump is a conservative, a liberal or something in between. Now, however, there is a new question: Does it matter?
