Washington, April 16 (RHC)-- Madeleine Albright, the former U.S. secretary of state under President Bill Clinton, has raised her concerns about President Donald Trump's "undemocratic instincts."  Speaking on the CNN TV program Fareed Zakaria on Sunday, she said: "I'm not calling him a fascist.  I'm saying that he is a president who has undemocratic instincts that trouble me a lot." 

Albright said Trump is a president that thinks he is above the law and exacerbates the differences of American society.  She further characterized Trump as "someone who plays the crowds in a way that I find dangerous in terms of propaganda." 

The former U.S. secretary of state, who herself has extremely right-wing views, said that the president has created a situation where he identifies with one group of people without recognizing the individual rights of other people. 

Madeleine Albright has been a vocal critic of Donald Trump and had said that Trump is "the most undemocratic president" in America's modern history.  The first woman to be the U.S. secretary of state, has recently published a new book, "Fascism: A Warning," where she has warned about the possibility of a reemergence of fascism.  

Madeleine Albright, whose parents were of Jewish descent but later converted to Catholicism, fled Czechoslovakia as a toddler after Hitler's invasion in 1939.
