(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Former President Donald Trump has received a lot of backlash following his remarks on Veterans Day where he referred to his political opponents as “vermin.” Many have pointed out that this is the same language that had been used by dictators decades ago.
In a speech in New Hampshire he pledged that he would remove from the country the “radical left thugs” who live within the United States like “vermin.” He proceeded to warn his audience that there was a far greater threat within he country than the threat outside the country. As he argued, if the United States had a strong and “capable” leader then none of their exterior opponents would “play” with them.
Many Democrats and even certain Republicans have criticized Trump over his recent remarks commenting that they are extremely similar to the remarks that Adolf Hitler, the German dictator had made during World War II. Some have also argued that this sort of rhetoric is an indication of the way that Trump would act if he won a second term in office.
However, the Trump campaign was quick to dismiss any of the comments about the former president’s rhetoric. Ammar Moussa, the Biden campaign spokesperson argued that this was a week in which Americans were honoring those who have fought for the country, but that Trump was now parroting the remarks that Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler had made.
Similarly, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates argued that the comments Trump had made were similar to those of the two dictators and that World War II veterans would be familiar with this language.
