Prominent Libertarians Launch Movement Backing Donald Trump

“Libertarians for Trump” group claims mogul is candidate "whose views are closest to libertarianism”

A pair of Libertarian ideologues have established an organization attempting to rally support behind Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

The “Libertarians for Trump” group, created earlier this week by editors Dr. Donald Miller and economics professor Walter E. Block, admits “it has its work cut out for it in mobilizing massive support for Donald Trump within the libertarian community.”
This is because, Block writes, “there are some libertarians who oppose supporting any politician for political office, even a 99% pure one such as Dr. Ron Paul.”

“There are several issues upon which libertarians do not and cannot support Donald Trump. For example, protectionism,” writes Block. “But, typically, regarding the issues where Mr. Trump deviates from libertarianism, so do the other candidates.”
