Then-President Barack Obama said during the 2016 election campaign that Donald Trump was a “fascist,” according to Hillary Clinton’s running mate. 

Sen. Tim Kaine was caught privately sharing the remark with Clinton in footage included in a new Hulu documentary about her, which NBC News previewed.

“President Obama called me last night and said, ‘Tim, remember, this is no time to be a purist. You’ve got to keep a fascist out of the White House,” Kaine told Clinton.

Kaine, laughing, added that Obama “knows me and knows that I could tend to err.”
