Duke University psychiatry professor Allen Frances claimed President Trump may be responsible for millions of deaths and said he’s been more destructive than infamous dictators Adolf Hilter, Mao Zedong, and Joseph Stalin — a series of claims that sparked criticism over CNN’s lack of pushback.
Frances appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday, and almost immediately contradicted himself by comparing Trump to mass murderers, right before he discouraged personal attacks.
“Trump is as destructive a person in this century, as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were in the last century,” he said. “He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were. He needs to be contained, but he needs to be contained by attacking his policies, not his person.”
