Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore called real estate mogul and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump a fascist on Friday for his ideas on immigration.
"I denounced many of his ideas, including the idea of some sort of federal deportation force, that's he gonna put together. Some sort of local, domestic organization that's gonna root people out," Gilmore said on NewsMaxTV. "I just don't agree with that kind of thing. I've said it's fascist talk."
"This not a serious candidate for president, I don't what he's showing the polls," he added.
Trump has said he would deport undocumented immigrants in the country using a "deportation force."
Gilmore, who is still running for president, is not registering in presidential polls. Trump leads the field with just under 25% in the Real Clear Politics polling average.
