Rand Paul: ‘Wake Up’ America ‘Authoritarian,’ Trump a Fake Conservative

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Republican front-runner Donald Trump has an “authoritarian concept of government,” which is not truly conservative but more in line with people like Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV).

Paul said, “I want to stand up for small people like Vera Coking, who Trump wanted to take her house through eminent domain. Someone has to stand up for the people to somebody who I think basically has an authoritarian concept of government. He believes that eminent domain should be used to take the property from a small property owner like Vera and give it to his casinos so they can build a parking lot. This is what most conservatives in America, if you told them that Harry Reid would be for this, they would all be against Harry Reid. but if you them them Donald Trump is for it, they’re not listening. Americans need to wake up and listen. Donald Trump is not a conservative. He is a fake conservative.”
