Ignoring the similarities between Adolph Hitler and President Donald Trump would be “asking for dire consequences,” House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) warns.

In an interview with NBC News, Clyburn accused Trump of “discrediting institutions” like the U.S. military:

“I was asked, have I ever seen a climate like this before, and I said, ‘No, I have not, but I have studied about climates like this, and I reminded folks there that Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany. And he went about the business of discrediting institutions to the point that people bought into his stuff. To allow anybody to discredit the press, to discredit the military, to discredit our leadership, both in the Congress and outside, you’d be asking for dire consequences.

“And I think it’s time for the Congress — House and Senate — to grow spines, and do what is necessary to protect this democracy. This man and his family are the greatest threats to democracy of my lifetime.”
