Deep concern over 'fascist appeal' brought to White House

'"Deep concern" is needed over President Donald Trump who has "brought fascist appeal to the White House", a former US Governor and 2016 Presidential election candidate has claimed.

Martin O’Malley – a former Governor of Maryland and 2016 US presidential election candidate – told RTE’s ‘This Week’ programme in an exclusive interview that political institutions in the United States will be tested by Donald Trump’s presidency.

“We are going to see just how strong our political institutions are, now that we’ve seen two parties torn apart, and a third party take a fascist appeal right in to the White House,” Mr. O’Malley said.

“Our greatness lies on our ability to correct our mistakes and now we have a big one to correct,” Mr O’Malley added.

Mr O’Malley also told This Week the main characteristics of fascism are represented in Donald Trump’s appeal, including: “telling the majority that their greatness is in the danger of being stolen from them by an ethnic minority” and the implementation of a Muslim travel ban in the US.'>>>
