Trump's social media post promises "unified Reich", a Nazi usage

Trumps social media post promises unified Reich, a Nazi usage

Washington: Former United States president Donald Trump posted a video on his social media platform Truth Social, showing hypothetical headlines speaking "unified Reich" if he wins this year's presidential election in the country, Agence France-Presse reported.

However, the language used has received severe criticism from President Joe Biden's camp.

In a 30-second video clip posted by Trump, the voiceover asks, "What happens after Donald Trump wins? What's next for America?"

The video flashes a series of fictitious headlines addressing American prosperity. Among the headlines, there are "Economy booms!" and "Border is closed". Then comes "the creation of a unified Reich". However, no direct reference to the Nazis was made in the clip, but the term "Reich" is commonly used in reference to the Third Reich of Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler.

AFP reports that there were multiple copy-and-paste chunks of text to fill out the background of newspapers, mentioning World War I. The "unified Reich" is a term generally used to refer to the 1871 unification of Germany.

Trump's post comes when he has repeatedly attempted to portray Biden as failing to stop anti-Semitism in the United States while tensions are surging here, fueled by the war in Gaza.

Earlier, Trump had faced criticism for making mentions of Nazi-like rhetoric, including referring to immigrants as "vermin" and claiming that they are "poisoning the blood" of the United States.

In Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump had described some neo-Nazi marchers- who chanted "Jews will not replace us"- as "very fine people". This was in 2017 when he was the president.
