Trump Jr. compares modern-day DNC to 1930s Nazi platform

President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., said Wednesday that the modern-day platform for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is “awfully similar” to the platform of the 1930s Nazi party.

“I’ve been hearing the left talking about these things — fascism, Nazism on the right — and when you look at the actual history and how these things evolved, and you actually look at that platform versus the platform of the modern left, you say ‘Wait a minute, those two are very heavily aligned,’ ” the president’s eldest son told conservative cable news channel One America News Network.

“You see the Nazi platform from the early 1930s … and you look at it compared to the DNC platform of today, you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar’ to a point where it’s actually scary,” Trump Jr. continued.


Trump Jr. was attending the Washington, D.C., screening of “Death of a Nation: Plantation Politics and the Making of the Democratic Party,” a film made by Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative commentator who was pardoned by the president in May after being convicted of making illegal campaign contributions.

“When you look at the movie, you’ll see that there is a very distinct and clear difference between what actually happened and what is being sold to our youth today,” Trump Jr. said of D’Souza’s film. 

Trump Jr., who leads the Trump Organization, said it is important to look at “actual facts” based on what the public has been told.

“When people talk about these things, you can’t just spew that because someone told you that in history class when academia and everything has been so influence — so wrongly influenced — by the left,” he said.

“You have a bunch of kids in dreadlocks running around screaming about fascism and all these things, you’re like ‘Wait a second, have you actually taken a history class?’ ” he continued.

Trump attended the film premiere with his reported girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

“Death of a Nation” described itself as an “examination of fascism and racism” that “reveals an eerie similarity between the situations faced by President Trump now and the situations faced by former President Lincoln in 1860.” 

The Hill’s In The Know reported from the Wednesday night screening that the film is being shredded by critics. 

Variety said the documentary “stretches the truth in a way that makes your head hurt (and your stomach turn)” and is filled with “half-baked baloney.”

The Hollywood Reporter said it was full of “historical inaccuracies and distortions.”
