President Trump's oldest son evinced quite the opinion Thursday while trying to promote a film by conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza.
Donald Trump Jr. likened the Democratic National Committee's platform to that of the 1930s-era Nazi party, reports The Washington Post. At a screening, Trump Jr. praised D'Souza's film for correcting the record, claiming that liberal narratives have filled academia with false information.
"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. told One America News Network.
"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,'" he continued. "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. claimed that the reality of the situation is "the exact opposite of what you've been told." As Politico notes, the president's son did not comment on members of the alt-right who self-identify as Nazis and white supremacists. Read more at The Washington Post. Summer Meza
