GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump had displayed many of the traits associated with being a fascist. He's long been connected with radical right-wing nationalist groups. Today his claims and actions support fears that America needs to "fear" others and take action against them. No matter if they are Catholics, Jews or, Muslims.
Yes, Trump is a fascist because he clearly does not believe in the democratic system. He wants power any way he can get it. It does not matter if he loses, he believes he should be in charge and should do what he wants with this country. He is a huge threat to democracy.
Fascism is a very specific political ideology and while Trump's racism, misogyny and elitist conservatism when it comes to economic matters do overlap with fascist overlords who have come before him it is not correct to call his politics 'fascist'. He is rather a populist who stirs crude passions and tells people what he thinks they want to hear regardless of facts.
The NYC Mayor compared Donald Trump to a fascist, claiming that his campaign attempts to align white voters against people of color. Bill de Blasio also cited Trump's remarks about the election being rigged as further proof of fascism, saying it is a tactic to undermine the democratic process. Fascism, however, takes away individualism, particularly in business, and it is clear that Trump is not against capitalism or individual success. Trump is not a Fascist in any sense of the word.
