4. BLAMING OTHER COUNTRIES FOR OUR ECONOMIC PROBLEMSIn addition to blaming Germany’s economic misfortunes on the Jews, Hitler also railed against the economic sanctions imposed by France and Britain through the Treaty of Versailles. He vowed to (and succeeded in) breaking that treaty so as to allow Germany to recover and grow strong again.
Trump blames Mexico and Latin America for stealing US jobs. He blames China for off-shoring production. He said he was going to force Japan to stop lowering it’s currency’s value. In other words, he claims America is inherently great, and all it’s problems are someone else’s fault and he is going to bully them until they stop.
