Trump repeats anti-immigrant tirade, denies reading Hitler

“The language he uses reminds us of the language coming out of Germany in the 30s,” Biden told reporters Tuesday. “He has called those who oppose him ‘vermin’ and again this weekend he talked about the blood of our country being poisoned.”

But Trump brushed off the Hitler comparison, claiming that Hitler’s rhetoric was said “in a much different way.”

“I never read ‘Mein Kampf’” he told the audience in Iowa. “They said Hitler said that — in a much different way. No, they’re coming from all over the world — people all over the world. We have no idea — they could be healthy, they could be very unhealthy, they could bring in disease that’s going to catch on in our country. But they do bring in crime. … They’re destroying the blood of the country, they’re destroying the fabric of our country, and we’re going to have to get them out.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Trump’s language, comparing it to the language used in 1930s Germany. Biden pointed out that Trump has referred to his opponents as “vermin” and recently talked about the “blood of our country being poisoned.” However, Trump dismissed the Hitler comparison, stating that Hitler’s rhetoric was different. He also denied ever reading Hitler’s book, “Mein Kampf,” and instead emphasized his concerns about immigrants bringing crime and disease into the country.

In the current context, this exchange between Biden and Trump highlights the ongoing debate over immigration policies in the United States. Trump has been known for his hardline stance on immigration, particularly targeting undocumented immigrants. Critics argue that his language and policies perpetuate xenophobia and discrimination. On the other hand, supporters argue that stricter immigration measures are necessary for national security and economic reasons. The controversy surrounding Trump’s comments and his denial of reading Hitler’s book adds to the polarizing nature of the immigration debate and the larger political climate in the country.
