“Trump’s ICE, and this is well-documented in the book, too, is very similar to the uprising of Hitler’s Gestapo,” she said.

Anti-Trump author Amy Siskind raised eyebrows with a remark at a town hall in Oakland, California on Wednesday night, when she compared U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to Hitler’s secret police, the Gestapo.

The remark was made at a town hall event hosted by billionaire environmentalist and liberal donor Tom Steyer, who sat in a chair next to Siskind while she made the remarks.

During a question-and-answer session, an attendee asked Siskind what prompted her to write, “The List: A Week-by-Week Reckoning of Trump’s First Year.”

Siskind began by recounting what she called “pervasive” hate crimes that took place after Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

“So much of what led to the rise of Hitler was the hatred of others and fanning those flames,” Siskind said. Trump, she claimed, was following that “same kind of methodology.”

“Trump’s ICE, and this is well-documented in the book, too, is very similar to the uprising of Hitler’s Gestapo,” she said. “They’re rounding up people at work. A lot of this is not being covered because it’s happening in local markets.”

Siskind said she believes these events are not receiving media coverage “because there’s so much chaos” in the country and around the world right now.
