Gary Johnson: Trump Appeals to Racists

Gary Johnson, former Republican governor of New Mexico and more recent Libertarian candidate for president of the United States, jumped on the bash-Trump bandwagon during a recent interview with Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie.

[Trump] is appealing to a segment that I’ll just label racist. And it exists. And it’s out there. And you know what, I don’t want anything to do with it…. It embarrasses me and, like I say, I think that the electorate will paint the entire Republican Party with a broad brush as a result of Trump. And it won’t be a positive.

Trump continues to defy expectations by consistently ranking at or near the top of polls measuring support among likely primary voters.
