I'd say he's moderate on social issues... The reason I'd say that is he often offer conservative rhetoric on some of those issues, but I haven't seen
any action that really concerns me.
And per the spending, I'd agree I haven't seen him buy into long term progressive spending issues.... But, on the flip side spending was up pre COVID
to record levels, and we all know what happened after (I expect more too).
While I agree the purse has more to do with congress, he campaigned to lower debt. While it wasn't one of his big talking points, he did touch on it.
That and he has signed off on a lot of what congress has sent his way. To be fair, there's been plenty that didn't make it past his desk, but if
someone asked me if Trump was fiscally conservative or libertarian to my liking, I'd say no.
Then again, I more closely identify as a libertarian than anything.... So the chance of me approving of a politician's fiscal stance is slim to none.
