Trump Praised Hitler For Doing 'A Lot Of Good Things

Former US President Donald Trump, whose grandfather was a German immigrant, had praised Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s reinvigoration of his country’s economy during a 2018 trip to Europe to celebrate the centennial of the Allied victory over Germany in World War I.

Citing an advance copy of Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender’s book “Frankly, We Did Win This Election,” The Guardian reported that Trump told chief of staff John Kelly that “Hitler did a lot of good things.”

According to the report, Trump’s comments came as Kelly was briefing the president on World War I, reminding him “which countries were on which side during the conflict.”

All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

The former Marine general “told the president that he was wrong, but Trump was undeterred,” reported Bender, who wrote that Trump denied having made such comments.

Kelly also told the president that “you cannot ever say anything supportive of Adolf Hitler” and “argued that the German people would have been better off poor than subjected to the Nazi genocide.”

According to The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, Trump asked why he should go to a US military cemetery in France during the trip, declaring that it was “filled with losers.” Trump has repeatedly come under fire from Jewish and civil liberty groups for his relationship with the far-right.

Several of the pro-Trump insurrectionists who stormed the capital last January in an attempt to block the certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory were known white supremacists.

One was photographed wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” hoodie. Last October, asked if he would denounce white supremacists and militia groups during a televised presidential debate, Trump told the Proud Boys right-wing group to “stand back and stand by.”
