Trump as a threat to human rights….

Human Rights Watch is listing President Donald Trump as a threat to human rights, calling his campaign a “vivid illustration of the politics of intolerance.”

The 687-page World Report  analyzes Trump’s campaign, pointing to his rhetoric as a cause for worry over human rights violations.

“(Trump’s) campaign floated proposals that would harm millions of people, including plans to engage in massive deportations of immigrants, to curtail women’s rights and media freedoms, and to use torture,” the report says, quoting Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth.

Human Rights Watch is a global nonprofit, nongovernment group that does research and reports on human rights conditions in 90 countries.

Its new report analyzed the U.S. election as well as politics across Europe.
