They were members of the German Herrenklub (Gentlemen's Club), which was very conservative but not National Socialist. But, acting from narrow self-interest, they became Hitler's enablers.U.S. President Donald Trump is not a Nazi dictator (though some of his closest advisers admire some of the ideas that inspired fascism and Nazism in the past).Apart from persecuted minorities and dissidents, many ordinary people gained from government programs (not to mention the looting of conquered countries).This was not the last stage of capitalism; Hitler used the capitalists for his nefarious ends.The situation in the U.S. under Donald Trump looks rather different. Trump used populist language in his campaign, stoking up popular resentment against the educated urban elites, including capitalists on Wall Street. This began long before Trump appeared on the scene.Henry Ford was an anti-Semite who was happy to cooperate with Nazi Germany until 1942 . He was also a leader of the America First Committee, which opposed going to war against Hitler.But he had one insight, which Trump's business-first accomplices would do well to heed.
