Donald Trump Is Not Hitler. OK, But Can You Tell Them Apart?
"He’s not Hitler. He wants to help America. He wants to unite people."
But the thing is, it's not just people who oppose Trump who have trouble telling him apart from Hitler--some of his supporters do too.
What about you? Can you tell your Trump quotes from your Hitler quotes?
“In the end, you’re measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.”
“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.”
“Strength lies not in defense but in attack.”
“I can … make my enemies tell the truth.”
“Who says I am not under the special protection of God?”
“What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.”
“When somebody challenges you, fight back. Be brutal, be tough.”
“Anyone can deal with victory. Only the mighty can bear defeat.”
“I play to people’s fantasies. I call it useful hyperbole.”
“Nothing can make me change my own belief.”
“God the Almighty has made our nation. By defending its existence we are defending His work.”
“One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow.”
“My motto is not ‘Don't, whatever you do, annoy the enemy.’ My motto is ‘Destroy him by all and any means.’”
“We have to put a stop to the idea that it is a part of everybody's civil rights to say whatever he pleases.”
“Much more often than you’d think, sheer persistence is the difference between success and failure.”
