Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” activist and CEO of Koch Industries Charles Koch said some of the ideas put forth by Republicans during the current presidential campaign were “reminiscent of Nazi Germany” and “dangerous.”
Partial transcript as follows:
JON KARL, ABC NEWS: What did you think when you first heard Donald Trump’s proposal to put a temporary ban on all Muslims coming into the United States?
KOCH: Well, obviously, that’s antithetical to our approach. What was worse was this, we’ll have them all register. That’s reminiscent of Nazi Germany. I mean, that’s monstrous. As I said at the time.
KARL: You hear another top presidential candidate talk about making the sands glow and carpet-bombing the Middle East.
KOCH: That’s got to be hyperbole. But, I mean, that — that candidate, whether they believe it or not, would thing that appeals to the American people? This is frightening.
