According to Forbes Trump believes and says publically that autism is caused by vaccines.

On Twitter Trump wrote:
A study says @Autism is out of control--a 78% increase in 10 years. Stop giving monstrous combined vaccinations

There doesn't seem to no attempt to walk back on the statement.
Let's say a Democratic candidate or even establisment Republican believes that autism is caused by vaccines and says it publically. What happens?

Afterwards he and his advisors say that he mispoke, and didn't really mean that autism is caused by vaccines. An estalishment politican doesn't double down on such a claim. That's something where Trump acts very differently and that matters.
