Republican frontrunner Donald Trump became very aggressive in his speech after the Paris attacks, having something against all Muslims, saying that he’ll support registering them in a database. Of course, this statements attracted some consequences, according to AFP.
Does Trump stand a chance against Democrats?
Some conservative Republican groups have started to call Donald Trump a “fascist” and they think that the businessman will be an easy target for Democrats if he wins the Republican nomination. His stance has become so extremist that voices are asking, even inside his party, whether he is committed to democratic values, according to AFP.
“Trump is a fascist. And that’s not a term I use loosely or often. But he’s earned it,” Max Boot, a military historian and foreign policy adviser to Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, posted on Twitter. Fear grows fast inside the party and some people think that Donald Trump can produce more damage than good to the GOP.
“Forced federal registration of US citizens, based on religious identity, is fascism. Period,” added John Noonan, a national security advisor to former Florida governor Jeb Bush, quoted by the same source, while The Seattle Times send a clear message regarding Trump’ attitude to its audiance. “Trump’s campaign message reflects a kind of creeping fascism. It needs to be rejected”.
Trump doesn’t have any experience with federal registration, says Jeb Bush
Jeb Bush told Fox News on Wednesday that the country needs a leader that has experience in this sort of problems. “He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Bush said about Donald Trump, after the businessman’s statement that thousands of people from the Muslin community were cheering on 9/11.
“They say that Trump can do almost anything, and nobody leaves me. And it is true,” Trump said at a rally Tuesday in South Carolina. Trump still leads in polls, despite all this attacks from his rivals.
