Stefanik silent on Trump echoing Hitler and meets him at Mar-a-Lago

Dec 21, 2023 1:21 am

MSNBC reports that so far Rep. Elise Stefanik has not denounced former President Donald Trump's echoing Adolf Hitler from "Mein Kampf." Trump doubled down after speaking of immigrants as vermin, saying this week that "It's true that they're destroying the blood of our country. That's what they're doing.... They don't like it when I said that and I never read 'Mein Kampf.' They said, 'Oh, Hitler said that in a much different way.'" In Hitler's book "Mein Kampf," the dictator wrote that, "All great cultures of the past perished only because the original creative race died out from blood poisoning." Stefanik, who was shouting at college presidents about anti-semitism last week, was not only silent on the issue, but she met with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort and posted a photo with him on social media on Dec. 19. Stefanik represents Rensselaer County and the rest of the 21st Congressional District. Trump is the leading Republican candidate for president, though, more and more, running a fascist campaign.
