UN Official Compares Trump Rhetoric to ISIS

Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, the human rights chief for the United Nations made a bit of an extreme stretch Monday at a security conference by comparing Donald Trump's populist rhetoric to that of ISIS.

"Make no mistake, I certainly do not equate the actions of nationalist demagogues with those of Daesh, which are monstrous, sickening; Daesh must be brought to justice. But in its mode of communication, its use of half-truths and oversimplification, the propaganda of Daesh uses tactics similar to those of the populists," Hussein said, using an alternate name for ISIS.

This isn't the first time a political leader has used "Trump" and "ISIS" in the same sentence. On the campaign trail this year, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton claimed Trump's anti-Muslim comments were helping terrorist recruiting efforts.

At least the UN human rights chief didn't single Trump out this week. He had similar criticism for other Western demagogues he says are stoking fear for political gain, such as Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilder, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, French National Front leader Marine Le Pen and Brexit leader Nigel Farage.
