    Is the Trump Administration conservative?

    For reference, the term "conservative" is defined thusly:

    con·serv·a·tive
    [kənˈsərvədiv]
    ADJECTIVE
    holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.
    synonyms: traditionalist · traditional · conventional · orthodox · [more]
    NOUN
    a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics.

    Does the Trump administration fit that definition? What do you think?

    Nah, this administration isn't conservative.

    The best thing about this administration is that it's not the Hillary administration.

    This administration may end up being terrible, but it's got that going for it.

    While I'm not a hillary fan and didn't vote for her I wish she had won. At least she would understand the job.

    It's shameful that a crude guy like Trump is the leader of our country.

    The Republican party doesn't meet that description. Trump is just as "conservative" as is any other Republican.

    What's REALLY shameful, is that we had Trump and Hillary as the only nominees with a chance to win.

    Next time, hopefully, we will have at least ONE decent nominee to vote for.

    It seems to me that the Trump Administration is the opposite of "cautious about change or innovation."

    WASHINGTON — When Representative Mark Sanford of South Carolina, fresh off helping torpedo his party’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, showed up at the Berkeley County Republican meeting on Saturday, he was met with applause and praise in one of the most conservative corners of his district.

    So less than a week later, after President Trump on Thursday warned the Freedom Caucus that he would “fight them” when they face re-election next year, Mr. Sanford was hardly cowering in fear. Instead, he and other members of the Freedom Caucus returned fire.

    “Intimidation may work with some in the short term, but it never really works in the long run,” Mr. Sanford said, adding that Mr. Trump should interpret the recalcitrance of conservative lawmakers as an indication of a flawed bill: “What you can’t do is shoot messengers.”

    Representative Tom Garrett of Virginia, another Freedom Caucus member, was even more blunt. “Stockholm Syndrome?” he asked on Twitter above a copy of Mr. Trump’s taunting post, suggesting the president had become captive to the Republican establishment he gleefully flayed during the campaign.

    LOL...

    It's truly a bizarre world when this liberal sides with the Tea Party

    Trump is no conservative. Furthermore, the conservatives have jumped onto the socialist bandwagon in their quest for solutions, so that word has very little meaning any longer.

    That makes no sense because the people picked trump over a slew of others. Hillary stole it from sanders so that is a different story.
