The great-granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev compared President Donald Trump's rhetoric to that of Russian dictator Joseph Stalin, the Washington Examiner reported.

Nina Khrushcheva said Trump's "fake news" mantra rings familiar.

"President Trump defined 'fake news' the way Joseph Stalin defined 'enemies of the people': if they offer a slightest objection to his rule, they must be wrong. And they must be silenced," Khrushcheva told the Examiner.

Khrushcheva, biologically the great-granddaughter but also the adopted granddaughter to Nikita Khrushchev since he adopted Nina's mother, was responding to Trump's attacks on NBC News, especially the most recent one questioning the network's license.

The Russian American professor of international affairs at New York's The New School told the Examiner, "somewhere on the way to his real estate/reality TV career he forgot his lessons in civics and American democracy from high school."

"For that we are all paying dearly. And the longer he stays in, offering more and more somewhat Stalinesque amendments to American democracy, the more autocratic erosion to this once wonderful system we will experience," Khrushcheva told the Examiner.

Khrushchev led the Soviet Union from 1953 until 1964 after Stalin's death in '53.
