Washington, DC, United States (4E) – GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump did not like comments by Mexico's president, a comedian and a journalist that he was like Adolf Hitler at his campaign rally for making supporters raise their hands as if they were making a Nazi salute.
"It’s a terrible comparison," Trump said on ABC News' "Good Morning America" hosted by George Stephanopoulos . "I’m not happy about that, certainly. I don't want that comparison."
Trump has asked his supporters at rallies to raise their hands to pledge to vote for him.
Mexican president Peña Nieto on Monday said the raising of the hands looked like Nazi supporters saluting Hitler in Germany or former Italian leader Benito Mussolini during their rise to power before World War II.
Comedian Louis C.K. and conservative journalist Glenn Beck also compared Trump to Hitler for asking supporters to raise their hands as a pledge to vote for him.
"They're raising their hands in the form of a vote, not in the form of a salute," Trump said of the swearing to endorse him, according to CBS News.
