Make Nazi Germany Great Again!

A Donald Trump supporter has been filmed telling protesters to ‘go to f****** Auschwitz’ during a confrontation outside one of the billionaire’s campaign rallies.

Marking the latest controversy to engulf the Republican nominee front-runner, the unidentified man is also seen to be raising his arm in an apparent Nazi salute.

Trump’s campaign remains plagued by accusations of racism – stemming from both his own statements and policies, and his support from white supremacist groups.

The video, which was filmed as his supporters were leaving a rally in Cleveland on Saturday, shows dozens of fans exiting the rally past a group of protesters.

One man wearing a checkered short and cap walks past the group with his arm raised. He then tells them: ‘Go to Auschwitz. Go to f****** Auschwitz.’

The incident is not the first time Trump supporters have evoked memories of the genocidal Nazi party during his campaign.

Birgitt Peterson, 69, of Yorkville, Illinois, appeared in a photograph published by the Chicago Tribune wearing a Trump t-shirt and holding a cigarette while making a Nazi salute.

Her right arm is raised into the air, fingers outstretched and palm facing down, reproducing the salute adopted by Adolf Hitler’s supporters in the 1930s.

Peterson, who was born in West Berlin in 1946, a year after Hitler’s death, later claimed she made the gesture as a counter-protest to those accusing Trump of being a ‘second Hitler’.

Rejecting accusations she was a Nazi, she told the New York Times that she did it to show ‘rude’ protesters how to ‘do it right’.

Trump, 69, has also been criticized for failing to adequately distance himself from the support of the former head of the Klu Klux Klan.

Charming people.
