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.”
