Abstract

Although popular discourse on the left has frequently labelled Donald Trump as the second coming of fascism, I posit that this is not actually the case.If one looks at the actual historical ideology of fascism, as espoused by those who actually practiced it- one can see that Donald Trump is something very different indeed. This is because he does not fit into fascist ideology or practice.This presentation will show that rather than being a fascist in the inter-war sense, Donald trump is a garden variety right wing nationalist more akin to Franco than Mussolini. A very different thing indeed.
