Elon Musk responds to Robert De Niro’s controversial comparison of Donald Trump to historical dictators Hitler and Mussolini, asserting that such comparisons lack factual basis.

Elon Musk, the outspoken entrepreneur and owner of X, has taken to social media to counter actor Robert De Niro’s recent comparison of former President Donald Trump to notorious dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The clash began after De Niro’s appearance on MSNBC’s “11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle,” where he vehemently criticized Trump, labeling him as “sick” and “narcissistic.”

In the interview, De Niro expressed his disbelief at those who still support Trump, stating, “There’s not one redeeming thing in him I can see ever. Ever.” He went on to warn of the dangers of Trump’s potential return to the presidency in 2024, drawing parallels to historical despots. “And historically, from what I’ve seen, even in Nazi Germany, they had it with Hitler. They don’t take him seriously. ‘He looks like a clown. Acts like a clown.’ Mussolini. Same thing. These guys, I don’t know why, they look like clowns,” De Niro remarked.

Elon Musk, however, swiftly rebutted De Niro’s assertions on his own platform, dismissing the comparison as baseless. “Well, Trump was actually already president for four years and his policies bore no resemblance to those of Hitler, so this makes no sense,” Musk retorted. The exchange ignited a debate across social media platforms, with supporters of both figures weighing in on the controversy.

The clash between Musk and De Niro underscores the deeply polarized political landscape in the United States, where even seemingly innocuous statements can spark heated debate. As the country gears up for the 2024 presidential election, such confrontations are likely to become increasingly common, reflecting the intense passions and divisions that define American politics today.
