I think a lot of what Trump is doing has the support of a reasonable plurality of Americans some, like limiting immigration from terror prone states even has a majority of support.

If, however, Trump thinks slf-imposing trade restrictions on the United States is going to be popular, he is in for a huge surprise. Americas, along with most human being who have lived over the last hundred years, recognize free trade as an opportunity for mutual benefit. They see free exchange as something free people do. They understand that allowing business leaders to managed their own complex sourcing of materials makes more sense than having the government impose it.

Here is Gallup.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A record-high 72% of Americans see foreign trade as an opportunity for economic growth. This is up sharply from 58% last year, after much debate about trade during the presidential election cycle.

About 90 percent of the suspicion I have for DJT is his rejection of the common sense, proven economics and liberty enhancement that is free trade and commerce. I am please to see that the vast majority of Americans agree.
