Clyburn Makes Trump-Hitler Comparison, Says America Could Become Like ‘Germany in the 1930s’

In an interview with Axios on HBO Sunday, House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn said that in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, President Donald Trump is a racist who could make the U.S. “go the way of Germany in the 1930s.”

Clyburn is an influential force in Democratic politics and is seen by many as singlehandedly resurrecting Joe Biden’s campaign after his South Carolina primary endorsement. The top-ranking African American sees parallels between America today and Nazi Germany.

‘I’m Trying To Sound The Alarm’

“I used to wonder how could the people of Germany allow Hitler to exist,” Clyburn said. “But with each passing day, I’m beginning to understand how. And that’s why I’m trying to sound the alarm.”

 

Clyburn compared Republicans’ rallying around Trump to how Nazis helped Hitler his rise to power, focusing specifically on what Clyburn considered falsehoods in President Trump’s State of the Union address.

“Fully half of those lies, the Republican side of the House stood up and cheered they knew that was not true. But they cheered him on,” Clyburn said, continuing to compare today’s GOP to Nazi Germany.

“I really believe that the people of Germany knew Adolf Hitler was lying,” he said. “And before they knew it, they no longer had a chancellor but a dictator. Anything that’s happened before can happen again.”

Clyburn insisted he was not saying Republicans were like the Nazis or Adolf Hitler, only that he believes the “dynamics” through which Hitler rose are similar to Trump’s popularity within his party.
