Trump wished the generals would regard him as Adolf Hitler was treated by the Nazis.

There is a lot of evidence that Donald Trump intended to be treated as a dictator, constantly arguing with military officials, and has deep knowledge of history.     Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the former president used World War II to try to convey the kind of unwavering loyalty he demanded for America's generals.



 There is a lot of evidence that Donald Trump intended to be treated as a dictator, constantly arguing with military officials, and has deep knowledge of history. 


Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the former president used World War II to try to convey the kind of unwavering loyalty he demanded for America's generals.


Trump reportedly complained to then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly about what he saw as unfaithful generals, according to an excerpt from The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021 that appeared in The New Yorker on Monday. "You generals, why can't you be like German generals?"


"German generals in World War II," Trump said.


Kelly then reminded the President of Hitler's abortive assassination attempts. "Did you know they tried to kill Hitler three times and almost killed him?" Kelly said.


However, Trump naturally insisted on the contrary. He replied, "No, no, no, they were entirely loyal to him," he said.


"These were people who lacked talent, and once I realized that, I didn't rely on them, and I relied on real generals and admirals within the system," Trump reiterated.


Trump has always yearned for the same kind of dedication given to former autocrats. Trump said he wanted "my people" to treat him the same way as North Koreans treat that nation's murderous head of state. "He's a head of state, and I mean, he's the strong head, don't let anyone think of anything different," Trump told Fox News. He speaks and his people pay attention. I want my people to do the same ".


Trump's hatred was highlighted in an excerpt from The Divider: 


Trump in the White House, 2017-2021, which also included the fact that he did not order disabled veterans to participate in a memorial parade. Trump told Kelly, "Look, I don't want any wounded men on the show," Trump told Kelly. "That doesn't look good to me."


Kelly replied, "These are the heroes." "In our society, there is only one group of people more heroic than them - and they are buried in Arlington."


"I don't want them," Trump reiterated. "It doesn't look good to me."
