Linda Ronstadt Says President Trump Treats Mexicans Like ‘the New Jews’

Singer Linda Ronstadt directly compared President Donald Trump to the German dictator Adolf Hitler, and claimed Mexicans are being treated the same as Jews in Nazi Germany, as reported by Fox News.

She made the statement in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, where she also called President Trump “uncontrollable,” and compared his confirmation of many federal judges to Hitler’s efforts to consolidate power in Germany in the 1930s.

When Cooper pushed back on Ronstadt’s comparison between Trump and Hitler, she defended herself by claiming that “if you read the history, you won’t be surprised…it’s exactly the same.” She claimed that President Trump has been trying to “find a common enemy for everybody to hate…it’s gonna be like Hitler, and the Mexicans are the new Jews.”

She also claimed that the Trump Presidency has caused a strain in her own family due to some of her relatives being Republicans. However, she described her conservative relatives as “fairly rational Republicans,” saying that “we don’t have that in our current White House.”
