Donald Trump was apparently pleased after former German Chancellor Angela Merkel compared him to Adolf Hitler.

"At least twice, Karl writes, Trump gloated to a prominent member of Congress that Merkel — who detested the 45th president privately and had trouble hiding her scorn publicly — told him she was 'amazed' by the number of people who came to see him speak, and Trump said, 'She told me that there was only one other political leader who ever got crowds as big as mine.' The Trump-allied congressman knew who Merkel was comparing Trump to, but couldn’t tell if Trump, who took Merkel’s words as a compliment, himself understood," an excerpt from Jonathan Karl's new book Tired of Winning: Donald Trump and the End of the Grand Old Party, which comes out on November 14, read, per Politico Playbook.

This is hardly the first time Trump has been compared to the Nazi leader who was responsible for killing millions of Jews during the Holocaust.

In 2018, Trump's former chief of staff John Kelly wrote that during a trip to Europe to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the former president, said, "Well, Hitler did a lot of good things."

"Oh, I can’t even, I can’t even think that because I think it would be the end of our country as we know it. And I don’t say that lightly," the former Secretary of State replied.

"You know, I hated losing, and I especially hated losing to him because I had seen so many warning signals during the campaign," she added. "But I immediately said, look, we have to give him a chance. We’ve got to support, you know, the president we have. And I meant it. And I tried really hard."

Clinton made it clear that Trump is not a good candidate.

"If he were ever near the Oval Office again, [he'd] find people who have no principles, no conscience, who are totally tied, you know, to his fortunes literally, and therefore would do whatever he said," she explained. "So the the wreckage is almost unimaginable."
