(ConservativeInsider.org) – After critics attacked former President Donald Trump’s comments about immigrants and suggested it was akin to Nazi rhetoric, Trump declared that he is “not a student of Hitler.”
Trump called into Hugh Hewitt’s conservative talk radio show on December 22nd, leading Hewitt to question what Trump meant by his comments about illegal immigrants “poisoning the blood” of the United States. Trump said if you look at who’s entering our country, people crossing the border are coming from “mental institutions and insane asylums” from all over the world. He then called them terrorists that are “poisoning the blood of our country.” Trump added that many of them don’t speak English and “we don’t even know” what language many immigrants are speaking.
Hewitt pointed out that critics of Trump have compared his rhetoric to Hitler, who said in his book “Mein Kampf” that Jews were poisoning German blood. Trump retorted that his polling numbers among Hispanic and black voters is high. Hewitt pressed Trump further on the comparisons, to which Trump replied that “I know nothing about Hitler” and had never read any of Hitler’s works, adding that his statement was “very different” from Hitler’s.
According to Maggie Haberman, a reporter for the New York Times who also wrote a book about Trump called “Confidence Man,” that a friend of Trump’s named Marty Davis gave him a copy of “My New Order,” which is a book of speeches by Hitler. However, it is unclear whether Trump actually read the book or not. Trump’s former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, believes Trump’s comments are meant to be a “dog whistle.”
Trump also raised eyebrows over his Christmas message shared on Truth Social, suggesting that his enemies are “looking to destroy” the United States and that he hopes they “rot in Hell,” before wishing everyone a merry Christmas. Trump included a laundry list of those he believes are trying to destroy America, including those who support open borders, those trying to make the military more woke, and people who support the Green New Deal, which he called the Green New Scam.
