Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton said that his party is “literally in the worst position as a party since the 1920s” in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo Friday night.
“I think it’s time for an entire new generation of leadership in the Democratic Party,” Moulton stated.
“We have to look at ourselves in mirror and realize that Trump may be terrible but if we can’t beat him and we are literally in the worst position as a party since the 1920s, which is where we are today, then we have to make reforms ourselves,” he continued.
“I don’t think we should be trying to out-Trump Trump,” says Democrat Rep. Seth Moulton. “The answer to Trump is to actually do the right thing. Is to elect leaders who have the courage to be honest about the problems that we face.” pic.twitter.com/0NmpkCLkYD

Moulton added, “I think a new generation of leaders will come from many different corners of the party.”
In 2016, prior to the presidential election, Moulton implicitly compared then-candidate Trump to Hitler in Germany in the 1930, according to the Boston Globe. While denying that he was actually making the comparison, the congressman did suggest people read up on how Hitler rose to power in reference to Trump.
