Only if your posture against Trump is inch deep. You can't say that Trump has corrupt processes, is a corrupt entity and then say that this one decision is not the result of his corruption.
This is part of a larger theme from conservatives where their hatred of Trump stops just short of self-reflection.
If the only way for my ideology to be implemented required me to empower the likes of Trump, then I'd take a long look at my ideology. Not so for conservatives.
Whenever their interest overlaps with Trump, they rush to protect it even if it further entrenches Trump's power. It's almost like they don't really care about Trump's degradation of the country beyond their personal distaste for him.
It never occurs to them that if the good things about conservatism can only survive if paired with Trumpism, then maybe those things aren't good? Maybe they're harmful? Maybe these ideas appeal to Trump because they assist his vision of the world?
It's easy to criticize the individual things Trump does. If you atomize it, there's a whole spectrum of disagreement there. But it's hard to accept that the wholeness of his vision will largely boost you and yours.
Conservatives have neither grappled with how they built Trump nor with how he is the only vehicle for many of their policy wishes. The former would require self-awareness, and the latter sacrifice.
