Former US President Donald Trump compares the Biden administration to the Nazis at a Republican National Committee donor retreat in Florida, The New York Times reports.

“These people are running a Gestapo administration,” Trump tells donors at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, according to a recording obtained by The New York Times.

“And it’s the only thing they have. And it’s the only way they’re going to win, in their opinion, and it’s actually killing them. But it doesn’t bother me,” the former US president says as he campaigns to retake the White House from US President Joe Biden in the November elections.

According to a book published in March, and other reports, Trump has commended Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on more than one occasion

Trump is currently embroiled in a historic criminal trial in New York in which he stands charged of falsifying business records to cover up hush money payments to a porn star to avoid another scandal before the 2016 election.

In addition to the New York case, Trump has been indicted in Washington and Georgia on charges of conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

He also faces charges in Florida of allegedly mishandling classified documents after leaving the White House.
