Trump’s Derogatory References to Political Opponents Draw Comparisons to Dictators Hitler and Mussolini

Former president Donald Trump denigrated his domestic opponents and critics during a Veterans Day speech, referring to them as “vermin” and suggesting that they pose a greater threat to the United States than countries such as Russia, China, or North Korea. Historians condemned Trump’s language, comparing it to that of authoritarian leaders.

Trump’s remarks included false claims about the 2020 election being stolen and his intention to root out “communists, Marxists, fascists, and the radical left thugs” in the U.S. As he continues to assert himself as a “proud election denier,” Trump portrayed himself as a victim of the political system that is plotting against him and his supporters.

Furthermore, Trump emphasized the threat from within, stating that outside forces such as Russia and China would not challenge the U.S. if it had a capable leader. He directed blame and grievances toward the American internal threat during his speech in Claremont, N.H.

Trump’s divisive rhetoric has drawn backlash and condemnation, particularly for his use of the word “vermin.” Historians compared his language to that of dictators and warned against dehumanizing opponents, citing the similarities to strategies used by authoritarian figures.

Trump’s spokesperson dismissed criticisms, attributing them to “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” as Trump continues to receive widespread condemnation for his extreme language and rhetoric.

Beyond his Veterans Day speech, Trump has also faced severe criticism for referring to undocumented immigrants as “poisoning the blood of our country,” a statement that sparked comparisons to Nazi propaganda by civil rights groups.
