It wouldn't be a terribly bright move on any of their parts. Getting into a name-calling battle is Trump's home turf.

Besides, he's probably more a far-right populist than a fascist, at least where global politics is concerned.

A good article from Vox on the subject:

Our candidates are free to expound upon the ways in which tRump IS a fascist without resorting to use of that word, which I believe is counterproductive and playing into their hands.
