Trump is many things; a neoconservative is not among them.
I wouldn't be upset if we just stopped using the term neocon. In political theory, neoconservative thought and policy was, from its infancy at U of C, a very specific, fairly well defined ideology; at some point Ron Paul supporters got a hold of the term and just starting painting everyone with it. At present, the term has lost its meaning and has allowed the real neoconservatives to re-brand themselves and sort of slip back into the shadows of government, media, and influential think tanks.
