‘Taxi Driver’ Screenwriter Compares Trump Supporters to Nazis

Screenwriter Paul Schrader, most famous for his work on numerous Martin Scorsese films including “Taxi Driver,” recently declared that he considers supporters of President Trump to be the same as Nazis, Fox News reports.

His outburst was in reaction to the news that polling has proven just how little public opinion has been swayed, neither one way or the other, by the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

He said that “I think they [Trump supporters] know exactly what’s happening and approve of it,” adding that “they want a strong man rule, they don’t want the chaos of democracy…They are nativists. They are the crowd that lined the streets in Nuremberg in 1933.”

He ended his rant by asking the question of “Are there more of them or more of us?”
