Canada's first female prime minister describes Donald Trump as a self-celebrating sexual predator whose rhetoric threatens the democratic process.

In an interview with CBC News about the upcoming U.S. election, Kim Campbell didn't hold back when discussing the Republican nominee.

"He has described himself as a sexual predator. The behaviour he has admitted to and celebrated in himself is predation," Campbell said, speaking by phone from a Calgary hotel.

"Unconsented sexual touching is a sexual assault. And somebody who does that, who thinks he has a right to do that, who does it thinking that it's a reflection of his value because he's a celebrity, et cetera, I mean that is predation.

"It makes everybody feel unsafe."
