Trump: The most libertarian major candidate left

If you pull back from the entertainment and the salty rhetoric and just stick to policy, Donald Trump is the most libertarian candidate still running for president.

Despite critics who label the billionaire a statist and a fascist — on foreign policy, the military-industrial complex, medical marijuana, auditing the Federal Reserve, and bringing back the gold standard, Trump is closer to Ron Paul than he is to Dick Cheney.

On March 21, Trump revealed part of the Trump Doctrine to the Washington Post. The Republican front-runner insisted that America needed a lighter footprint around the world, no nation building, and reduced NATO spending.

He said that under his administration, nations like South Korea and Japan would have to start protecting their own countries instead of American taxpayers.
