I refuse to call trump supporters "conservatives".
There are some good things about actual conservative political philosophy: skepticism of government overreach, the understanding that well-intentioned interventions are often counterproductive, suspicion of fads and panics, desire to decentralize power to the local level.
i.e. the exact opposite of everything the Trumpist GOP stands for.
They don't deserve the word "conservative". The word for what they are is "authoritarians".
