Video: Donald Trump and Fascism

With Donald Trump named as the Republican Party nominee, his views are coming under increased scrutiny. People as varied as Robert Reich, George Clooney, and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto have criticized Trump by invoking Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. And in fact, Trump has retweeted quotes by Mussolini. Is Donald Trump really a fascist?  Amy Goodman puts the question to the father of fascism studies, Robert Paxton, professor emeritus of social science at Columbia University and author of several books, including The Anatomy of Fascism.

    This is so interesting and also scary, but sometimes we have to be scared.

    Trump leads a divided unhappy party.
