ADL calls on Trump to apologize for ‘Nazi Germany’ reference

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) slammed President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday for comparing U.S. intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany.

“The President-Elect’s use of Nazi Germany to make a political analogy is not only an inappropriate comparison on the merits, but it also coarsens our discourse and diminishes the horror of the Holocaust,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement. “ADL always has maintained that glib comparisons to Nazi Germany are offensive and a trivialization of the Holocaust.”
