Well, of course I disagree.

Fascism is about using fear tactics to extend authoritarian control over a population.

Since taking office, Trump has largely eschewed fear tactics, has actually given up governmental authoritarian control in the economy and other spheres by EO’s that will deregulate the economy, shrink the size of the bureacracy, etc., and backed off of the fear-based proposals in his campaign, such as the Wall.

If one dislikes Trump, they need to find another pejorative for him other than “fascist”. When that’s used, they lose credibility, because it shows a lack of historical knowledge about the term.
