Biden doubles down on Trump/Hitler comparison

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The idea that former President Donald Trump would govern like a fascist is almost as old as his political career itself.

The term was used freely by the Left as the former president cracked down on illegal immigration and pursued a “law and order” agenda.

Conservatives rejected the label as liberal hysteria after his surprise election in 2016, and establishment Democrats were more circumspect in their use of such analogies.

But the Biden campaign is now leaning heavily into the comparison as the president faces a possible rematch with Trump in 2024.

President Joe Biden and his aides have been openly likening Trump to German dictator Adolf Hitler in recent days, pointing to statements from the two that the campaign says are similar.

In doing so, Team Biden is likely hoping to gin up his base but also tap into the bloc of suburban voters turned off by the former president’s rhetoric.

Two Trump statements in particular have come under scrutiny and drawn comparisons to the Fuhrer. The first is his vow to “root out” political opponents who he said “live like vermin” within the country. The second is his claim that immigrants are “poisoning the blood of our country” while pledging to secure the southern border.
