Hillary Clinton Likens Trump to Hitler, Says His Return Would Be the “End of Our Country as We Know It”
Hillary Clinton did not mince words while discussing the potential complexities of a second term for Donald Trump during her appearance on The View on November 8. She made a striking comparison, likening Trump to Adolf Hitler and warning that a second term for the former President would spell disaster for the United States.
When asked about the potential consequences of a Trump re-election, Clinton expressed her concerns in no uncertain terms. Co-host Sunny Hostin raised the question, inquiring about what might happen if Trump were to be re-elected in 2024, given his ongoing efforts to secure a second term following his defeat in 2020. In response, Clinton stated that she couldn't even fathom that scenario, adding, "I think it would be the end of our country as we know it," as per Fox 35 Orlando.

Clinton went on to elaborate on her apprehensions and suggested that Trump's behavior during his first term had been somewhat restrained by advisors who resisted his more extreme impulses. However, she believed that if he were to return to the Oval Office, he would surround himself with individuals who lacked principles and conscience and were solely dedicated to serving his interests. According to Clinton, the potential consequences of this are 'almost unimaginable.'
One of the most powerful and alarming statements Clinton made was a reference to Hitler's rise to power. She pointed out that Hitler was 'duly elected' and drew parallels to the authoritarian tendencies exhibited by leaders like Hitler, who gradually eroded democratic institutions and silenced dissent, according to Radar Online. Clinton argued that Trump's actions and statements indicate his intentions to undermine the rule of law and essential American values.
Clinton stressed the importance of paying attention to what Trump is saying and taking his words seriously. She firmly believed that Trump's intentions include imprisoning those who disagree with him, shutting down legitimate press outlets, and actively undermining the rule of law. It's worth noting that Clinton's loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election still resonates as a pivotal moment in the country's history.

This isn't the first time Clinton has expressed her concerns about the direction in which she believes the Republican Party and its supporters are heading. In a CNN interview in October, she called for a 'formal deprogramming' for many Trump supporters, as per Fox News. She voiced her concerns about the rise of extremism within the Republican Party, where, she argued, some extremists take their cues from Trump, who she accused of lacking credibility and acting solely in his own self-interest. Clinton also pointed out that Trump "means to throw people in jail who disagree with him, shut down legitimate press outlets, [and] do what he can to literally undermine the rule of law and our country's values."
