In his May 1 op-ed, “A stain on our conscience,” Eugene Robinson provided the qualification Richard Cohen described in his May 1 Tuesday Opinion essay, “Trumpism will carry on,” for labeling President Trump a fascist. Mr. Cohen wrote that Mr. Trump didn’t fit the fascist profile because he wasn’t an anti-Semite. True, but Mr. Trump has chosen a different scapegoat to demonize, immigrants, and, as in the case of Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel, their descendants. Add in the rejection of “dreamers,” the praising of the “very fine people” protesting in Charlottesville, and the insult to people with ancestors from “shithole countries,” and “Trumpism” becomes much more synonymous with “fascism.”
