CNN host Fareed Zakaria on Sunday laid out his anti-Donald Trump case for supporting Hillary Clinton, calling the GOP nominee a "racist" and a "cancer on American democracy."

Opening his program Fareed Zakaria GPS,  Zakaria argued he's held opinions both "left of center" and "conservative" – and thought previous GOP presidential nominees were "honorable men."

"Donald Trump is different," he said. "Not just because he is obnoxious, tacky, and vulgar or that his business dealings show him to be a scam artist. He's different because of what he believes."

"The first one that stands out is race," he said. "Donald Trump has consistently expressed himself in word and deed in ways that can only be described as racist."

But he bitterly condemned the candidate for what he described as Trump's "core views," asserting a voter's "view of Hillary Clinton is irrelevant."

"These then are the core views of Donald Trump, expressed over decades and confirmed by many of his actions: Racism, sexism, protectionism, xenophobia, and authoritarianism," Zakaria charged.

"His views on taxes and regulations are irrelevant," he continued. "Your view of Hillary Clinton is irrelevant. Donald Trump is not a normal candidate. He is a cancer of American democracy. And that is why I will vote against him next Tuesday. "
