There, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a somewhat bizarre comparison between former President Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler, cautioning The View hosts interviewing her against a potential second Trump term.
When asked about the possibility of a second Trump term by co-host Sunny Hostin on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Secretary Clinton described it as “almost unimaginable.”
Clinton continued by attempting to contrasting Trump with Adolf Hitler.
“I think that your loss of Trump in 2016 will go down in history as one of the most pivotal times in our country. One of the most pivotal moments in our country. And it’s still reeling from, you know, Trump’s policies, I think, and the deep divisions that he sowed in this country. So what in your view, would happen if he were to be reelected?” co-host Sunny Hostin asked.
“Oh, I can’t even, I can’t even think that because I think it would be the end of our country as we know it. And I don’t say that lightly.” Clinton said.
“So the the wreckage is almost unimaginable. You know, when I was secretary of state, I used to talk about one and done. And what I meant by that is that people would get legitimately elected, and then they would try to do away with elections and do away with opposition and do away with a free press.” she continued after a digression.
“And you could see it in countries where, well, Hitler was duly elected! (That’s right. Right.) And so all of a sudden, somebody with those tendencies, so dictatorial authoritarian tendencies would be like, “Oh, okay, we’re going to shut this down. We’re going to throw these people in jail.” Clinton added.
“They didn’t usually telegraph that. Trump is telling us what he intends to do!” she concluded.
