Trump Allegedly Told John Kelly That Hitler 'Did A Lot Of Good Things'

According to a new book, Donald Trump once told White House chief of staff John Kelly in 2018 that Hitler did "some good work."

According to excerpts of an upcoming book, obtained by CNN, from Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender, Trump said:

"Well, Hitler did a lot of good things," Bender writes in "Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost."

"Even if it was true that he was solely responsible for rebuilding the economy, on balance you cannot ever say anything supportive of Adolf Hitler," Kelly reportedly told Trump. "You just can't."


Of course, somebody from Trump's camp has denied the allegations.

"This is totally false. President Trump never said this. It is made up fake news, probably by a general who was incompetent and was fired," Liz Harrington, chief spokeswoman for Trump, told CNN.

On Wednesday, Trump announced that he has taken out a class action lawsuit against Twitter, Google and Facebook for removing him after the Capitol Hill riots.
