Joe Biden was slammed as “unhinged” by critics following an interview in which he compared US President Donald Trump to both Fidel Castro and infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels in the space of less than a minute.
Asked by MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle about voters believing Trump’s frequent accusations that Biden will push a socialist agenda as president, the former vice-president said he wasn’t sure if there was anyone voting for Trump who hadn’t already made up their mind.
“But who knows. He’s sort of like Goebbels. You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge,” he said, arguing that Trump was using the “socialist” attacks to “scare and distract” voters. He also accused him of “embracing dictators around the world” and then compared him to the late Fidel Castro.
