Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) on Monday declared that Donald Trump is a “fascist demagogue.”
Following Trump’s suggestion on Monday afternoon that the US should institute a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” for the time being, the presidential candidate tweeted that Trump had “remove[d] all doubt.”
O’Malley, who has lagged behind front-runner Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) in primary polls, has repeatedly criticised Trump for his inflammatory remarks about immigration.
“The fact of the matter is, and let’s say it in our debate — because you’ll never hear this from that immigrant-bashing carnival-barker Donald Trump — the truth of the matter is that net-immigration from Mexico last year was zero,” O’Malley said during the Democratic presidential debate last month.
Hillary and Sanders are not doing well, but what is the failed former Mayor of Baltimore doing on that stage? O’Malley is a clown.
