“It walks like a duck, quacks like a duck,” Johnson told The New York Times on Tuesday. "Where’s the Constitution in all this? He’s saying horrible things.”

Johnson said his running mate, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, was “spot-on” in comparing Trump’s immigration policies to Nazi Germany earlier this year.

Weld said Trump’s plans to deport illegal immigrants reminds him of Kristallnacht — a Nazi march through Austria and Germany in 1938 that led to the destruction of Jewish properties.

“I can hear the glass crunching on Kristallnacht in the ghettoes of Warsaw and Vienna when I hear that, honest,” he said.

“My Kristallnacht analogy does evoke the Nazi period in Germany,” Weld said when asked if Trump is fascist. "And that’s what I’m worried about. A slippery slope.”

Johnson on Wednesday said party loyalty may prevent Republicans from abandoning Trump, the party's presidential nominee.

“To come out in support of anyone other than a member of your own party — I understand how difficult that is,” he said.

Johnson noted his campaign is still making overtures to anti-Trump Republicans, however, citing former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as one example.
