Yes, Caleb in some personal ways Trump is not quite like Hitler, but having read many first rate biographies of Hitler and the Nazi movement there is much personality overlap of the two, and his political playbook is a near exact copy of Hitler’s.

There is not the slightest doubt in my mind that if the Donald ever gained the sort of total control that Hitler managed to arrive at in Germany by 1933 the consequences would be just as brutal. It would be our southern border feasco by a factor of millions.
