    E.g. I know that the US far right is actually terrified of the government, and strongly opposes anything they see as eugenics (e.g. abortions), whereas the European far right seems, to me, to be strongly in favour of those things.

    The European far right is primarily a group of social democrats who oppose multiculturalism and borderless societies. They would probably wholeheartedly support Trump (far more than the U.S., in my opinion).

    The American right is potentially more libertarian in essence. There is a major mistrust of government and authority in that nation, which makes Trump's appeal even more alarming (I see him more as a demagogue and far removed from conservative values).
