USA Today Says Trump Campaign’s Eagle Symbol Is Nazi-Like

Has anyone told the USA Today that the Bald Eagle is a national symbol of the United States?

From the screed

President Donald Trump’s campaign website recently unveiled a T-shirt that has come under fire because of design similarities between its logo and a Nazi symbol.

The similarity was first noticed, according to Forward, by two Twitter accounts, Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, described as a Jewish progressive group, and the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group formed by Republicans.

“The President of the United States is campaigning for reelection with a Nazi symbol. Again,” Bend the Arc tweeted on July 1.

Several Facebook posts have noted the similarities, as well. One user noted, “Trump is now selling straight up nazi propaganda shirts.”

They did eventually clarify in a tweet, but, still call the symbol Nazi-like, even after spending time in the “fact check” laying out that they are very, very different.

But the designs have key differences. In Trump’s, the eagle holds the American flag up near its chest; the Nazi symbol holds the swastika lower. Trump’s design also features “Trump 2020” below it. The American eagle is also a bald eagle, whereas the Nazi eagle is depicted as an all-black bird. (snip)

The claims that a Trump campaign T-shirt has come under criticism for using a symbol similar to a Nazi eagle is TRUE, based on our research. But it is worth noting that the eagle is a common symbol in American politics, and is included in the presidential seal of the U.S., as well as many federal departments.

The hell you say!

And remember this?

These people are nuts.

    The MSM has hated Americans for over 70 years. 1, but not the only, reason is they KNOW NOTHING about America. Exhibit #1 of MSM ignorance, likely willful ignorance.

    The actual article in USA Today said:

    Our ruling: Inconclusive

    The Nazis made a point of a left-facing eagle, as did the tRump campaign.

    The American version is a right-facing eagle.
