Trump is a con man whose populism is a ruse. But look for a more explicitly anti-corporatist right to emerge as an insurgency within the GOP in the future (like the present social democratic insurgency among the Democrats).

Saagar Enjeti discusses infighting within the Trump administration over an executive order to boost American production of medical supplies, but reservations from his administration has stopped him from signing the measure.
