Although Trump is a capitalist, he does not represent any significant 
segment of his class. Though not above racist (particularly 
Islamophobic), misogynist, and anti-union politics, the Republican 
establishment and their corporate sponsors embrace neoliberalism and an 
aggressive foreign policy that seeks to secure the dominance of US 
capital across the world. Trump’s opposition to “free trade” agreements, 
from NAFTA to the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership, and his 
isolationist opposition to the second Gulf War and ambivalence toward 
Israel (the most reliable US ally in the Middle East), is repulsive to 
the US capitalist class.
