Richard Gere gave an assessment of Donald Trump that doesn’t sound too far off from the truth. Gere, in an interview with the Evening Standard, compared Trump to America’s version of Mussolini and said he was a ‘demagogue, a clown.’
“Here’s a guy who’s obviously Mussolini. How is it possible that people would be supporting this guy?” Gere stated.
He continued by stating that Trump would get rid of jews and black people in the U.S.
“Anyone that we perceive as a problem, we’ll get rid of. This is how it starts. Intelligent people aren’t seeing this – don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s just idiots who are backing Trump – this kind of thinking is a slippery slope,” Gere stated.
Trump also seems to be a fan of Mussolini. He recently retweeted a quote from the infamous dictator. “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”
