Is Trotskyism Marxist-Leninism?

We don’t rule out working with some Trotsky people, But this is an ideological look at that Marxist trend.

Translated from Spanish by Google:

The ideological basis of Trotskyism is the "theory of permanent revolution." This is characterized by three basic characteristics that distinguish it from Marxism-Leninism. First Trotsky does not accept the alliance with the peasant movement considered reactionary by nature. While Lenin argues that this is vital because if not made the failure of the revolution would be assured to divert the proletariat from its ally, the poor peasants. In 1913 Trotsky had argued that Leninism itself the poison of his own destruction and that it was anti-revolutionary features.
The second difference compared Trotskyist Marxism-Leninism is the distrust towards the beginning of the Bolshevik Party, to the monolithic cohesion of the Party and its hostility towards the opportunist elements. Trotsky defended the coexistence of revolutionaries and opportunists, their groups and cliques within the same party. An example is the August Bloc Trotsky collaborated in harmony where the Martovites and Otzovists Liquidators and Trotskyites, posing as a real vanguard party. Third Trotsky maintained a distrust manifested in the heads of Bolshevism, attempts to discredit and defame. On occasion he had even qualified to Lenin "professional operator any arrears in the Russian labor movement."
An important aspect of the Trotskyist conception was, and is, with no distinction of the stages within the Revolution. Repudiates bourgeois-democratic phase and has strong inclinations to play the takeover. Ultimately your ultra-revolutionary Trotskyism speech and criticism of the Bolshevik party, for "alleged" rightists and leftists lines, it really does is to collaborate with the bourgeoisie, to divide and confuse the proletariat. With this ideology incompatible with Marxism-Leninism Trotsky could not pretend to enter into the Bolshevik party so I was forced to temporarily hide its ideological burden, hiding in his closet, to thereby obtain their input on it in 1917.
With the death of Lenin Trotskyism strong resurgence, regaining the old theory of permanent revolution with slight modifications. Since it is not openly presented as contrary to Marxism-Leninism but as a doctrine than Leninism, seeking his best performance and refinement. To make this possible Leninism divided into two periods: the period before the October Revolution (unfortunate and unacceptable) and posterior (permissible). With that Trotsky was preparing to supplant conditions Leninism by Trotskyism. Through a softer more moderate character and the "old Trotskyism" forms, discredit Trotsky tried to smuggle Leninism Trotskyism.
