Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think so. Trump is populist on trade (at least in words), but a classic tax-cutter and welfare-abolisher otherwise. And has no other progressive-looking ideas.

Also, the Democrats didn't flip from slave-owner to Civil Rights party: in the 90 years in-between, on occasion they championed a number of progressive ideas (New Deal anyone?), and Northern Democrats were always different (think of the immigrant-focused local branches in New York or Chicago).
