House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who has been pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment, Monday demanded to know why Trump wants to connect background checks for gun owners to immigration reform, and the move "reminds me of the 1930s" in Nazi Germany.
“What’s the connection between background checks for guns and immigration reform?" the New York Democrat said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "That we have to keep guns out of the hands of the invading hordes, of less-than-human people coming across our borders? That’s the implication. It’s disgusting — it reminds me of the 1930s in Germany.”
Trump made the call for "strong background checks" through a tweet early Monday, and Nadler said after that his reaction should have been shocking, but "he can't shock anymore."
“He can’t go lower than he’s been," said Nadler. "To link — these shootings were clearly at least in part the result of his racist rhetoric, that’s clear. His divisive and racist rhetoric — people have warned that they would lead to violence, and now they have.”
Trump also Monday tweeted an attack at the media concerning the shootings, saying that "fake news has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years" in the United States.
