    Here's the definition:

    Does Trump fit that definition? What do you think?

    Thats a definition.
    He holds some conservative views but he may be a JFK more than anything else.
    Of course there are precious few conservatives in the GOP so in relative terms i suppose he is.

    Agreed that there are precious few conservatives in the GOP.

    How is Donald Trump:

    1. disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
    2. cautiously moderate or purposefully low:a conservative estimate.
    3. traditional in style or manner; avoiding novelty or showiness
    Seems to me he's pretty much the antithesis of the above.

    The word conservative can mean many thi gs depending on the context. I suggested before that i found your snip sgall we say incomplete.

    But why spoil the fun ? Here goes...

    1 he IS lol redisposed to making America great again, to trust in God and eliminate recent mistakes representing change.
    2 he is cautious but MAGA requires proven action and it requires it NOW.
    3 his suits fit him unlike the trendy too small jackets favored by hollywooders and BO. As to the rest he IS a New Yawk boy and a born salesman and you could make a case that he is those things in relative terms.
