Trump Quotes Man He Once Called “Hitler Lover”

The Huffington Post reports:

President Donald Trump on Sunday quoted a man he once denounced as a “Hitler lover” to defend his plan to build a wall along the southern border.

In a CNSNews column claiming Democrats were hoping to “reduce the number of white men” in the country, political commentator Pat Buchanan urged Trump to declare a national emergency and use military money to build the wall.

Buchanan, who ran for president three times, has a long history of making racist comments ― and Trump once called him out for it. “Look, he’s a Hitler lover,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” in 1999. “I guess he’s an anti-Semite. He doesn’t like the blacks. He doesn’t like the gays. It’s just incredible that anybody could embrace this guy.”
