Rep. Chris Stewart, a Republican from Utah, on Monday compared Donald Trump to fascist Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

โ€œIf some of you are, Iโ€™ll just tell you now, Donald Trump supporters, then we see the world differently,โ€ Stewart said during a forum at the University of Utah, "because I canโ€™t imagine what someone is thinking.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m telling you, Donald Trump does not represent Republican ideals,โ€ Stewart continued. โ€œHeโ€™s our Mussolini.โ€

Stewart was one of the earliest members of congress to endorse Marco Rubio.

โ€œSo youโ€™ve got, you know, socialists on one hand,โ€ Stewart said, referring to Bernie Sanders, โ€œand someone thatโ€™s whatever he is on the other hand,โ€ referring to Trump. โ€œAnd those appear to be some of the choices we have. And you know, weโ€™ve gotta do better than that. We just have to do better than that.โ€
