Biden-Harris Campaign Responds to Report Donald Trump Said Hitler “Did Some Good Things”

We can’t believe we have to say this, but Hitler did not do “good things.”

A new report by CNN confirmed what we knew about Donald Trump, who’s spent the last several months promising to be a dictator, praising dictators, and echoing Hitler’s rhetoric on the campaign trail. Trump’s former chief of staff Gen. John Kelly confirmed that Trump said Adolf Hitler “did some good things.”

This comes days after Trump hosted authoritarian Viktor Orbán at Mar-a-Lago, calling him a “great leader.”

This is the same Viktor Orbán who undermines democracy, attacks the LGBTQ community, leads the most corrupt country in Europe, and is currently mired in a scandal after the pardoning of a man convicted of covering up sexual abuse of children.

Trump’s affection for authoritarians and dictators is longstanding and well-established.

Per CNN reporting, while Trump lavished praise on authoritarian leaders from Kim Jong Un to Xi Jinping, he “allegedly reserved some of his most unnerving praise for Hitler,” including complimenting Hitler for “[rebuilding] the economy” and [maintaining] his senior staff’s “loyalty.”

As the President said on Saturday, you can tell a lot about someone from the company they keep. On Friday, Trump hosted Orbán, who undermines democracy, and sucked up to him. Trump said the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, wrote him “beautiful letters,” and bragged about calling Xi Jinping a king. He told Putin to “do whatever the hell” he wants to our NATO allies.

Today’s report confirms that Trump ignored the Holocaust and the hundreds of thousands of American lives lost in World War II to praise one of history’s most notorious dictators. This isn’t leadership – it’s a betrayal of our values that’s beneath the office of the President.

Don’t just take it from us; take it from Trump’s former chief of staff himself, who said this about his former boss’s praise for Hitler:

“It’s pretty hard to believe he missed the Holocaust, though, and pretty hard to understand how he missed the 400,000 American GIs that were killed in the European theater,” Kelly told CNN. “But I think it’s more, again, the tough guy thing.”

Biden-Harris 2024 Senior Rapid Response Spokesperson Sarafina Chitika released a statement on Trump’s admiration for Adolf Hitler:

“I think we speak for the VAST majority of human beings on planet Earth when we say that Adolf Hitler did not — in fact – do ‘good things.’

“Donald Trump’s praise for Hitler is disgraceful but wholly unsurprising from the man who has parroted Nazi rhetoric on the campaign trail, called his political opponents ‘vermin,’ and sucked up to dictators and authoritarians like Vladimir Putin, Viktor Orbán, Kim Jong Un, and the rest of the gang.

“When Donald Trump talks like a dictator, praises dictators, and says he wants to be a dictator, we should probably believe him.”
