Trump Quotes Man he Called a “Hitler Lover” to Rationalize His Border Wall
If you are over the age of 35, then you have likely at least heard of Pat Buchanan, the 80-year-old former presidential candidate who worked for both Nixon and Reagan. Buchanan has also been accused of antisemitism and Holocaust denial.
Buchanan, who still appears on television as a political analyst, was once described by Donald Trump in an interview with Tim Russet on ‘Meet The Press’ as follows:
“He’s a Hitler lover. I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks, he doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”
Buchanan wrote a controversial article this last week, in which he lashes out at the Democratic party for being “hostile to white men,” and endorsed a possible move by Trump to declare a national emergency in order to build a wall on our Southern border.
“The Democratic Party is hostile to white men, because the smaller the share of the US population that white men become, the sooner that Democrats inherit the national estate,” Buchanan wrote.
One would assume that if the President of the United States called someone a “nazi lover” who doesn’t like blacks and gays, they wouldn’t typically use an article written by this person to justify a policy they are trying to push through, but Trump is no ordinary president.
In a tweet last night, Mr. Trump quoted a portion of Buchanan’s diatribe, before adding his own thoughts to the message, which read:
“The Trump portrait of an unsustainable Border Crisis is dead on. “In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with Criminal Records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes & 4000 violent killings.” America’s Southern Border is eventually going to be militarized and defended or the United States, as we have known it, is going to cease to exist…And Americans will not go gentle into that good night. Patrick Buchanan. The great people of our Country demand proper Border Security NOW!”
America is now in its 24th day of the government shutdown, sparked by the President’s insistence on securing funding for a border wall.
