Donald Trump's New Tagline Echoes a Nazi Slogan

Recently, Donald Trump’s speeches have begun to include the phrase, “one people, under one God, saluting one flag.” The use of this phrase is not accidental or one of his off-teleprompter moments; he has used it at Values Voter Summit, and on the campaign trail at stops including Philadelphia, near Des Moines, Iowa, and Asheville, N.C.

The use of the phrase “under one God,” excludes anyone who is Hindu, atheist, agnostic. It also likely leaves out anyone who believes in a God that isn’t the same one envisioned by right-wing Christians in America, such as affirming Christian denominations and Muslims. It darkly hints at discrimination against anyone who sees God a bit differently. But the religious subtext isn’t the worst part of this phrase.

The worst part is that Trump’s campaign appears to have deliberately borrowed language used by the Nazi Party in Germany.
