Gary Johnson: Donald Trump is appealing to racists

Libertarian Gary Johnson took aim at Donald Trump and his supporters in a new interview with Reason TV, while discussing promoting his role as CEO of Cannibis Sativa, a company marketing marijuana products.

“He is appealing to a segment that I’ll just label as racist and it exists and you know, I don’t want anything to do with it…It embarrasses me,” he says of Trump riding a surge in polls after his stance on illegal immigration.

A recent analysis of data points to the massive illegal population in prisons, violent crime trends and validates the facts behind Trump’s insensitive remarks.

Johnson takes aim at the two likely frontrunners: Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.

“Is this country of 300 million people only capable of being governed by two families?,” asks Johnson, the former two-term Republican governor from New Mexico, in the clip below.

Johnson explains why he hasn’t announced a 2016 presidential run:  “I just think there are more downsides than upsides to announcing at this point, and, look, I don’t have any delusions about the process,” he says.

“In retrospect, 90 percent of the time I spent [trying to become president] ended up to be wasted time.”

He  also lists a slew of topics where he differs with Rand Paul and other Republicans.
