AbstractThis week Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer caused controversy by suggesting that the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad was worse than Adolf Hitler in his use of chemical weapons, effectively ignoring the fact that the Nazi leader had used such weapons against German Jews during World War II. Ben Margulies writes that while it is possible Spicer simply made an uninformed gaffe, it may be part of a wider pattern of calculated ambivalence towards the anti-Semitism of the alt-right on the part of the Trump administration.
