He might be - but how would you or I know?
“Trump’s grand and vulgar self-absorption is inviting all of us to examine our own selfishness. His ignorance calls us to attend to our own blind spots. The fears that he stokes and the isolation he promotes goad us to be braver, more generous.” - James S. Gordon.

In brief a Buddha who rediscovers the Dharma for a specific era of the world when it has been lost to mankind.
So by that definition, no HH is not a Samasambhuddha.

Will surely tell you my friend,
Any minor world that breaks apart
Can fall together again.
Any major dude will tell you."
