Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not only has Trump bashed free trade, the Iraq war, and military alliances, he is now repeating the Cheny apostasy on deficits, and aligning himself (whether he realises it or not)  with MMT economists who support Sanders and taking a more radical approach on deficits than Krugman/Clinton.  He has also spoken about the importance of the social safety net and opposed Republicans seeking to cut it.

Yea, all populist stuff he could reverse tomorrow, and not necessarily indicators of what he would actually do in office. But we are talking about his campaign rhetoric rather than what he would actually do in office when assessing his electoral chances.
