What reason do we have for thinking Trump wants to move things in what libertarians would consider the right direction? Trump sometimes talks a moderately good game on foreign policy, but talk doesn't change anything. His biggest policy proposal so far is the budget plans, which, although not official yet, seem likely to mean more debt.
I will grant that a lot has been made of his anti-regulatory policies. While I lack the specific knowledge of how much he can put into effect and what the effect would be, perhaps that is one area where his actions look libertarian. On another important libertarian concern, limitation of executive power, his actions have been terrible.
