Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has crossed a line by comparing Germany's government to the Nazis and is no longer welcome in the country, a major ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday.The rebuke from Volker Bouffier, premier of Hesse state, reflected growing exasperation over Erdogan's assertions that Germany and other European powers were using Nazi tactics by banning Turkish political rallies in their territories.Germany media had reported that Erdogan was planning to visit Germany in March to rally Turkish people living there to support a package of new presidential powers in an April referendum.Germany's government has said it has not received a formal request for a visit by Erdogan.
