Donald Trump may be the presumptive Republican nominee for president, but on some issues he's to the left of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, Jose DelReal at The Washington Post writes.

Trump runs to the left not only of the GOP, but also of Clinton, on free trade, military intervention and more the Post notes.

The North American Free Trade Agreement "has been one of the great economic disasters," Trump said during a Lynden, Washington campaign rally on Saturday. "Who signed it? Clinton. Clinton," Trump said, in reference to Hillary Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Trump has sought to use Clinton's experience as President Barack Obama's secretary of state against her by pushing an "America First" foreign policy that also connects with voters wary of globalization, according to the Post.

Trump has also been moving left on the minimum wage.

Trump appears to agree with Clinton's rival, democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on many issues, causing problems for many Republicans who are either reluctant or have outright refused to back him.

"Some people would say I'm not that conservative on trade," he said in Eugene, Oregon. "And I believe in free trade, which everybody likes, but we’ve been taken advantage of by globalization because we have leaders that are incompetent. They don’t know how to do deals."

And, Trump told ABC's "This Week," "Don’t forget — this is called the Republican Party. It’s not called the Conservative Party," the Post noted.
