CEO of embattled consulting firm Cambridge Analytica's parent company compared the tactics used by President Trump in his 2016 campaign to those of Adolf Hitler.

A transcript of an interview released on Monday by the British Parliament's Digital, Media, Culture and Sport Committee reveals that SCL Group CEO Nigel Oakes said that Trump seized on anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. in the same fashion that Hitler demonized Jews to grow political support.

"Of course, Hitler attacked the Jews. He didn't have a problem with the Jews at all, but the people didn't like the Jews ... so he just leveraged an artificial enemy," Oakes told British academic Emma Briant.

"Well, that's exactly what Trump did. He leveraged a Muslim."

Oakes said that Trump seized on fears in the U.S. of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), but questioned how much of a threat the militant group actually posed to Americans

Right! Trump has been President for over a years. Where are the laws shutting down Muslim owned businesses? Where are the laws shutting down Mosques and Islamic Centers? Why no Kristallnacht? Lying weasel's asshole!
