Republican National Committee spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington, in an interview Wednesday, says that she sees “quite a few Mussolinis” in the 2020 Democratic presidential field.
“You’re going to be faced with a choice in 2020, and the president is exactly right. He said there are no Winston Churchills. But you know, I do see quite a few Benito Mussolinis in the Democratic field,” Harrington said on Fox News’s “Outnumbered.”
The spokeswoman then doubled down on her comments on Twitter, sharing the video of her and repeating the remarks likening the candidates to the Italian dictator.
The RNC did not provide any further comment on Harrington’s remarks.
