President Donald Trump held up Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford as an example of “good bloodlines” only to be condemned because Ford was an Anti-Semite who sympathized with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
During his trip to Michigan, Trump toured a manufacturing plant and then spoke briefly.
Unfortunately, his praise of Henry Ford took a dark turn.
“Good bloodlines,” Trump said of Ford. “If you believe in that stuff, you’ve got good blood.”

The problem is that Ford hated Jewish people and sympathized with Hitler, who systematically murdered 6 million Jews in a sinister plot to exterminate them in order to purify the human race with what he considered to be superior bloodlines.
In 1918, Henry Ford purchased his hometown newspaper, The Dearborn Independent. A year and a half later, he began publishing a series of articles that claimed a vast Jewish conspiracy was infecting America. https://t.co/qIxaSd5CrE https://t.co/6R2lyJKwAz

Ford also manufactured war material for Nazi Germany and profited off the Nazi war effort, therefore having a hand in the killing of American troops in Europe during World War II.
Therefore, Trump praising Henry Ford’s “good bloodline” could very well be a wink and nod to neo-Nazis who support him.
Trump could have easily avoided this by praising his innovative approach to manufacturing automobiles and for building a company that is the backbone of the American manufacturing sector while offering affordable vehicles to consumers at home and around the world. But that’s not what Trump did. He specifically talked about bloodlines even though the automaker believed Jewish blood infected America.
Once again, Trump demonstrates that he’s a person who seems to pander to Nazis and white supremacists.
