( – On Sunday, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) was asked about the criticisms received by former President Donald Trump recently as many pointed out that his remarks on immigration “parroted Adolf Hitler.”

 In the past, Trump had been accused of making statements that resembled the ones made by the Nazi Leader. Most recently in a campaign rally in Durham, New Hampshire on Saturday, Trump, who is leading the Republican primary presidential race, had claimed that immigrants were “poisoning the blood” of the country. He proceeded to argue that this was the case for all the immigrants that were entering the country, and he pointed out that immigrants did not arrive in the United States just from South America, but in reality, they were coming from all over the world, including Africa and Asia.

Trump’s statements were quickly called out by the campaign of President Joe Biden who pointed out the similarities between Trump’s remarks and those of Hitler. 

Ammar Mousa, the 2024 Biden-Harris campaign spokesperson noted in a statement that Trump in his speech had “channeled his role models” by sounding like Hitler, quoting Russian President Vladimir Putin and even praising the leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un. Mousa further noted that Trump during his remarks about becoming the President, promised to rule as a dictator and threatened the U.S. democracy. 

When Graham was asked about the remarks, he tried to avoid the question before telling NBC News’ Meet the Press host Kristen Welker that he did not care about Trump’s remarks and the language that he was using, so long as he got it “right.”
