July 24, 2016
“Donald Trump represents the same thing that nationalists, populists have used throughout time immemorial… in recent years Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin,” American analyst Susanne Posel says.
The wall on the Mexican border US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is talking about shows that he is following in the footsteps of Benito Mussolini, and Adolf Hitler, an investigative journalist and activist in Washington says.
Susanne Posel, chief editor of Occupy Corporatism and US Independent, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Saturday, after Trump reiterated his vow to build a wall along the US-Mexican border in a bid to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
"We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities," Trump said in the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, on Thursday.
The Republican presidential nominee has already stated that Mexico sends “criminals” and “rapists” across the border and that he will force the neighboring government to pay for the giant wall to keep illegal migrants out.
Trump's proposal of the construction of a 2,000-mile wall on the US-Mexico border has been met with strong criticism both at home and abroad.
Posel said whether or not Trump builds the border wall “is irrelevant at this point because of the ideology that’s proposing that Americans need to wall themselves up, that Americans need to make America great again by making it America again which to this specific group of people he is talking to mean make America white again.”
