Fareed Zakaria: Your Views of Clinton Are ‘Irrelevant,’ Trump Is ‘Cancer on American Democracy’

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria opened his show this morning explaining why he believes Donald Trump so uniquely alarming as a potential President of the United States.

Not only does he find Trump “tacky and vulgar,” but Zakaria believes Trump has “expressed himself in word and deed in ways that can only be described as racist.”

He argued that Trump believes “deeply in ethnic stereotypes” and is quick to tell Americans they should “blame their problems on foreigners.”

And after sounding the alarm about Trump’s “contempt” for American values, Zakaria made this closing argument:

“Your view of Hillary Clinton is irrelevant. Donald Trump is not a normal candidate. He is a cancer on American democracy. And that’s why I will vote against him next Tuesday.”
