Unlike Sanders, Trump seems to be a pure opportunist with no real ideological commitment. I suspect that most of his campaign promises (such as making Mexico to pay for the wall or starting a trade war with China) are only made to appeal to voters and he has no serious intention of carrying them out.

His committment isn't ideological. On the other hand he does have a committment to appearing strong and not looking like he can be bullied around.

Trumps own financial interests are in real estage and not hurt much by starting trade wars.

Why do you think that Trump has no intention of engaging in trade wars? Simply because you believe the policy to be bad?
