No, Trump is not like Reagan.

Reagan was a conservative long before he was a Republican.
Trump was a liberal (by his own admission) even when he was registered as a Republican.

Reagan committed to the Republican party and conservatism over 20 years before he ran for President.
Trump changed his party several times just in the last 10 years or so.

Reagan actually worked to elect conservatives and support conservative principles long before he decided to run for office.
Trump worked to elect Democrats and help them control Congress before he decided to run for office.

Reagan treated his opponents with respect and won by persuading large segments of the population that conservative governance would make their lives better and restore America to greatness and prosperity.
Trump is trying to win by attacking and insulting everyone with whom he disagrees, and promising to “make America great” simply because he says he will - trust him!

I am so tired of people trying to compare Trump to Reagan. I knew Ronald Reagan. I worked to elect Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was my governor and my President. I actually met Ronald Reagan. And while Reagan was not perfect, Trump is surely no Ronald Reagan.

Yeh and I expect Trump will step up and make America great again just like Ronnie. :-)
