I love Trump LOVE him!

He's a progressive and a populist, any libertarian who thinks otherwise is suffering cognitive dissonance.

Welcome to the team boys!

But I'd vote for the better progressive Sanders

Not being an anarcho-capitalist != progressive

True conservatives are nationalists.

Trumps more than a nationalist.

He's vowed to preserve social security

He plans to vastly invest in infrastructure, including a very costly border wall.

Oh and tarriffs will pay for that wall

He's proposing limiting H1b visas to further restrict the "free market"

But most importantly trumps not saying "government is the problem" he's saying the idiots running the government are the problem.

Mussolini and Stalin were both anti-capitalist (as were the Nazis), and both were "revolutionaries" against liberal democratic capitalism, so had a fair bit in common.

Trump actually agrees closely with Sanders with regard to trade policies. They are both against all of these free trade agreements that have helped to move American businesses and jobs overseas. Sanders has voted against every single free trade agreement and strongly opposes the TPP. And Trump... well I guess if he is elected, we'll see if he keeps his word.

And they both oppose illegal immigrants because of their effect on American workers. They are a source of cheap labor that brings wages down. However, while Sanders wants to provide an easier path to citizenship and bring these people "out of the shadows," Trump just wants to kick them all out. So here is agreement on the problem, but a difference on how to solve it.

Don't look at the party that they're running for, they're basically running on the same idea; Use the existing two party system as a platform to stand on. Think of it this way: If Trump wins the Republican nominee, he's basically running as an Independent with no Republican to oppose him in the general election. Same goes for Sanders in regards to winning the Democratic nominee. They're trying to beat their biggest competition in the primaries rather than face them in the general election.

He is a both progressive and conservative on different issues.

For instance, he also wants to heavily cut the Department of Education, reduce regulations on businesses(and health insurance companies in particular) and has no desire to increase the minimum wage.
