Trump Accused Of Hateful Rhetoric

Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen joined the pig-pile over Trump’s recent remarks accusing immigrants of “poisoning the blood” of the country, The Hill reported.

During a December 16 campaign event in New Hampshire, the former president complained about immigrants from Asia, Africa, and the rest of the world who come to the United States. He accused immigrants of “poisoning the blood of our country” and suggested that they bring further terrorism and crime.

That same day, Trump doubled down on his inflammatory comment in a post on Truth Social saying that “Immigration is poisoning the blood of our nation.”

While campaigning in Iowa three days later, Trump again said immigrants were “destroying” the country’s blood and joked that his opponents “don’t like it when I said that.”

While appearing on MSNBC on Friday, December 22, Michael Cohen slammed Trump for the repeated comment, suggesting that the former president is using the rhetoric to “stir up his base.”

Cohen says Trump deliberately plays “to the lowest denominator” of Americans, namely “the racist, antisemitic animals that exist” in the “MAGA world.”

Trump’s former “fixer” predicted that the GOP frontrunner would “only go lower” each time he speaks, all to generate headlines.

Trump’s comments did indeed generate headlines and prompted many critics to compare his “poisoning the blood” rhetoric to the language Adolf Hitler used in his manifesto “Mein Kampf.”

In a December 22 interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Trump attempted to dig himself out of the controversy by claiming that he had never read “Mein Kampf” and knew “nothing about Hitler.”

Trump insisted that he didn’t know that Adolf Hitler had said anything similar to his “poisoning the blood of our country” remark. He added that he had “no idea what Hitler said” except what he “saw on the news,” and argued that what Hitler said was “entirely different” from what he was saying.
