“During the Second World War, chemical weapons were not used. A person as abject as Hitler has not even fallen as low as using chemical weapons , “Spicer told reporters daily.
Relaunched on the subject, Donald Trump ‘s spokesman tried to dispel the discomfort created by his speech by saying that he had wanted to talk about ” how Assad used [chemical weapons] when he went into the Cities and dropped them on innocent people, in the midst of cities. ”
Accused of having forgotten the millions of Jews, Germans or others, killed in the gas chambers, the man who speaks for Trump then brought a new clarification, stating off the podium: “I have not tried to minimize The terrible nature of the Holocaust … Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable, “he explained.
Despite this, Jewish associations and elected Democrats immediately denounced anti-Semitic or revisionist remarks. And Sean Spicer ended up apologizing to CNN: ” Quite frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive comment about the Holocaust and there is no comparison . For that, I apologize. It was a mistake. ”
