    I think that he is.... but I admit that I could have gotten the wrong impression from some of the documentaries that I have watched about his life?

    Speaking as a libertarian who has some Republican sympathies: no. Trump was probably the least libertarian Republican running, except maybe Cruz. Trump enjoys deficit spending, speaks out against due process, seeks even further immigration restrictions, favors tariffs, loves eminent domain, he treats trade as a zero-sum game, wants new restrictions on free speech and has tried suing people for exercising it, etc. Most libertarian publications and libertarian-leaning think tanks I've seen have been pretty critical of him and/or his policies.

    Then why are Libertarians having such a hard time campaigning against him?

    Leading Libertarians sure seem to be somewhat pleasantly surprised with President Trump or at least with his administration.

    It is intriguing that you consider Mr. Ted Cruz to be even less "Libertarian" than President Trump because
    Ms. Faith Goldy and her friend compared Mr. Cruz with Canada's Andrew Scheer who is now National Leader of
    the Conservative Party of Canada. I recently left Canada's Conservative Party and went with the newly formed People's Party of Canada that actually may be able to pull off a merge with Canada's Libertarian Party.




    My own personal psychological profile that I have came up with in my own mind for President Trump is that
    what he really wants......... is that a century or two from now as Americans look back at
    our time period they will recognize that he......... President Donald J. Trump, set in motion a series of events
    that was critical to the setting up the FINANCING for a shockingly "Libertarian Utopia" for America in the year 2185 as shown to
    former Atheist and near death experiencer Howard Storm Ph. D:

    https://www.near-death.com/experiences/notable/howard-storm.html#a04
    Howard Storm Ph. D:
    I believe that President Donald J. Trump wishes to break Americans out from under the slavery to debt and compound interest that we are in at this time.

    Over the past thirty years I have encountered surprise after surprise after surprise in terms of
    Religion and Philosophy........... and quite a few in terms of Politics and Economics.

    I personally see no contradiction whatsoever between the paragraph in the quote from Howard Storm Ph. D. with
    this statement from the Jewish minor prophet Malachi:

    Malachi 4: 5 ¶ Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

    6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

    Many Americans are alarmed that President Trump hangs around with Evangelical Christians but
    my wife is an amazingly gifted Pentecostal girl from Ecuador. I really do not comprehend many of the
    spiritual gifts that I have seen demonstrated through her over these past eighteen years so I think that somewhat like me,
    President Donald Trump feels the Shalom / peace of mind that many Evangelical Christians have........
    he respects it....... and he really wants for America to be a nation where Evangelical Christians are free to
    understand their scriptures and the world however they wish. I make very little effort to get my wife to think more like
    me on very few subjects.

    Personally....... I am open to the possibility that by the year 2185 a Dr. Eben Alexander might be nearly as famous as
    the Apostle Paul ..... I am 95% certain that my wife and her friends from church would vehemently disagree with me on this idea:

    I believe that President Trump wishes to save American taxpayers billions and billions of dollars in interest payments much as President Lincoln also did.

    If President Trump was not so Libertarian that he was willing to risk his very life for his beliefs..... why would he tweet the following on February 22, 2016:

    Dirty Donald is a man completely devoid of religion,morality,ethics and character, the only thing he worships or gratifies is his own bloated ego.

    Is Trump more "Libertarian" than most Democrats? American DEMOCRATS?! :eekeyes: . Oh, HELL yes!

    Nearly anybody in any political faction that isn't outright Communist, Fascist, or 'orthodox'-Socialist would be more "Libertarian" than a member of the American DEMOCRAT Party.... Democrats are absolutely allergic to independent, free-thinking citizens who stand on their own two feet, earn their own livings, and want as little government involvement in their lives as possible... i.e., "Libertarian".
