Clinton: GOP displays ‘too many characteristics’ of authoritarianism

Former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton mentioned on Wednesday that the present Republican Party displays “too many traits” of authoritarianism. 

“The drawback is, when you undergo the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, you see too many traits sadly on our Republican aspect,” Clinton advised “The View.”

“My most fervent hope is that Republicans themselves will start to reject all of that verbally, vocally, of their voting, and sort of reconstitute the Republican Party to the place it was once and never the celebration of Trump, which I feel could be very harmful to the nation,” she added.

Her feedback come amid a GOP backlash to President Biden saying last month that the philosophy of the previous President Trump-aligned MAGA wing of the Republican celebration was “like semi-fascism.”

Clinton additionally criticized the Republican Party in an interview with CBS News on Tuesday, telling the GOP to “develop a spine” and “stand as much as this man.” 

While Clinton advised CBS that she has no plans to ever run for president again, she mentioned she’s going to do the whole lot she will to make sure the following president “respects our democracy and the rule of legislation and upholds our establishments,” including that Trump doesn’t match the outline.

Clinton’s identify just lately returned to public discourse after a number of Republicans in contrast the categorised paperwork recovered from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence to Clinton’s use of a non-public electronic mail server as secretary of State. Clinton hit back at the comparisons, noting that she had no categorised emails on the server.

Clinton’s feedback on the GOP echo the case that Biden has been making forward of November’s midterm elections, arguing that Trump’s sway over the celebration poses an existential risk to democracy.

“Not each Republican, not even a majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not each Republican embraces their excessive ideology,” the president said final week in Philadelphia.

“But there’s no query that the Republican Party in the present day is dominated, pushed and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that could be a risk to this nation.”
