CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour’s comparison of US President Donald Trump to Kristallnacht is an affront to the memory of the Holocaust, Israeli Consul-General in Atlanta Anat Sultan-Dadon wrote on Sunday.
Sultan-Dadon called for Amanpour and CNN to apologize, in a letter to CNN executive vice president Rick Davis, obtained by The Jerusalem Post on the condition that it not be quoted.
Amanpour, CNN’s International Anchor, said in a segment last week that Kristallnacht was a significant turning point in the process “that led to genocide against a whole identity.”
“After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden/Harris team pledges a return to norms, including the truth,” she said.
Never before in the history of U.S. news networks did a journalist distort the Holocaust for political purposes as Amanpour just did on on CNN & PBS.
No, @camanpour, the Nazi genocide was not “an attack on fact, knowledge, history & truth.“
