– This is Hitler’s language

Policy: – This is Hitler’s language, not America’s, Biden said when he spoke at a fundraising meeting in Boston on Tuesday.

The video in question was published on Truth Social on Monday afternoon and was only removed 19 hours later – after it was met with strong reactions.

Trump’s campaign staff claims it was an inattentive employee who posted the video, in which the phrase “unified reich” is used as a reference to what Trump wants to establish.

– What’s next for America, reads the headline.

– The industrial strength will increase significantly, driven by the establishment of a “unified reich”, it says further.

US Vice President Kamala Harris believes that the video shows that American democracy is at stake.

– This type of rhetoric comes not surprisingly from the former president, and it is disgusting. And we must tell him who we are. Once again it shows that our freedom and our very democracy is at stake, Harris said as she addressed union members in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

– This was not an election campaign video, it was made by a random account and shared by an employee who obviously did not see this word. It happened while the president was sitting in court, says the Trump campaign’s press secretary Karoline Leavitt in a comment.

A spokesperson for President Joe Biden’s election campaign staff claims the message in the video is taken from Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf”.

– America must stop scrolling and follow along. Donald Trump is not playing, he says exactly what he intends to do if he regains power; to rule as a dictator in a “unified reich,” says a statement from Biden staff spokesman James Singer.

In the video, Trump promises economic growth, tax relief, tighter border controls and deportation of undocumented immigrants if he wins the presidential election in November.

Trump’s campaign staff, however, distance themselves from the video and claim that they were not the ones who posted it.
