I believe there are parallels between Hitler and Trump, but I don’t know if I completely agree that Trump is the new Hitler. Both have bleak diction and use vague statements that please the so called “forgotten” people of their nations. During the depression of Germany, people needed someone to blame and Hitler gave them the Jews as their problem, the Jews stole all their jobs and are monsters. While Trump appeased the blue collared white man who blames immigrants, especially Mexicans, for stealing the jobs they don’t put in any effort to find or want to do. Tim Snyder’s is not completely accurate since Trump has not done mass atrocities like Hitler has due to American democracy and social media to protest against things like his travel ban.
While reading the articles about Trump’s firs year, they parallel greatly to 1933 chronology. For example, the repeal of net neutrality can be similar to Nazi censorship of books once it implemented and both tyrants used fake news to insinuate their hate speech. The comparison between 2017 USA and 1933 Germany is valid, but controversial as Jews and other groups faced more severe consequences immediately. The Fox News Report even points out the differences between Trump and Hitlers regime, only that Trump is beginning to gain more grimaces because of his lack of diplomacy in serious issues while Hitler was rebuilding the economy for Germany people and dealing with their “problems”. The further we go into Trump’s presidency, I can see more of past repeating itself in the present. *cough cough* mass deportation of hard working and highly discriminated groups
