On Monday, a video was shared on Donald Trump’s social media account that discussed potential changes that could occur if he were to be re-elected as president.

The video, shared on Trump’s Truth Social account, portrayed a hypothetical situation of “What occurs after Donald Trump’s victory,” featuring a headline that emphasised the establishment of a “unified reich” and the growth of industrial power. The term “reich” is often used to refer to an empire, but it is also closely linked to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.

Biden’s spokesperson, James Singer, expressed his disapproval of the video, suggesting that it portrayed Trump’s desire for authoritarian rule.

The Trump campaign defended the post, stating that it was not intentional and suggesting that a staff member accidentally reposted content from an external source without realising the controversial term.

The video, which is still available online as of Monday night, surfaced during Trump’s ongoing hush-money trial in New York, even though the person responsible for its creation has not been identified.

According to reports, the text in the video bears a striking resemblance to a passage found in a Wikipedia entry about World War I. It specifically discusses the significant growth of German industrial power after the establishment of a unified Reich.

This incident occurs in the midst of ongoing tensions between Trump and Biden regarding their differing approaches to Israel and criticisms of their management of international affairs. Trump’s ongoing use of social media platforms like Truth Social enables him to share content that frequently highlights the differences between his campaign style and that of Biden’s.
