Gary Johnson is running to become the Libertarian candidate for President. (He has competition, and the final nomination will be decided at the party's convention in Orlando May 26-30.)

"With regard to Trump, he's saying some things that I just think are ridiculous and would disqualify any other candidate," Johnson told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day."

The former New Mexico governor cited immigration as a particular area of disagreement with Trump, arguing that instead of advocating for a wall and mass deportation, the United States should "embrace immigration." He called building a fence on the border "crazy."

"Speaking as a border governor, they (immigrants) are the cream of the crop," Johnson said.

The Libertarian Party is the only third party on the ballot in all fifty states.
