Did Eric Trump Just Echo Nazi Talking Point By Branding Opponents ‘Not Human’?

Eric Trump lashed out his father’s opponents “not even people” in what some called a frightening echo of the Nazi effort to dehumanize Jews and other enemies.

President Trump’s son, who helps run his real estate empire, made the remarks on Fox News, in which he also bemoaned the lack of “morality” among Democrats.

“I’ve never seen hatred like this,” he said on Fox News’s “Hannity” Tuesday night. “To me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country.”

On social media, slack-jawed users questioned Eric Trump’s effort to claim the moral high ground.

Historians say the Nazi party’s efforts to brand Jews as inhuman helped lay the groundwork for the Holocaust.
