CNN commentator Ana Navarro took issue with President Donald Trump’s comments about violent illegal immigrants, on “New Day” Thursday, and accused him of taking like a Nazi and a “slave owner.”
“I’m a lot more concerned of why he does things like call immigrants animals — when we start dehumanizing people,” Navarro said. (RELATED: Ana Navarro Says Trump WH Is Just Waiting For John McCain To Die)
The White House said Trump was referring Wednesday to the violent gang known as MS-13, but Navarro said that wasn’t a valid excuse.
“No, not good enough,” she said. “Not good enough from a president who has called countries in Central America — called countries like Haiti shi*holes … That’s why he doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt.”
Navarro then claimed she saw a video of a racist Trump supporter cursing at two Spanish-speaking women in Manhattan and used that as an excuse to compare Trump to a Nazi.
“I’m not saying all Trump supporters are like this. I’m not saying all Trump supporters are deplorable,” Navarro added. “But I am saying that the president of the United States has got to measure his words and be more careful about what he says. And it is a very slippery slope when you start dehumanizing people this way.”
“It’s what the Nazis did. It’s what slave owners did. It’s not what Americans do,” she concluded.
