Jim Gilmore: I Don’t Agree With Trump’s ‘Fascist Talk’

Republican presidential candidate and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore called, on Friday, GOP rival Donald Trump’s rhetoric so far in his campaign “fascist talk.”

Gilmore said, in an interview with NewsmaxTV, that he disagreed with Trump’s ideas on immigration and that the businessman was not a “serious candidate for President.”

“I denounced many of his ideas, including the idea of some sort of federal deportation force, that’s he gonna put together. Some sort of local, domestic organization that’s gonna root people out,” Gilmore said. “I just don’t agree with that kind of thing. I’ve said it’s fascist talk.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
