Senior House Democrat James Clyburn on Sunday doubled down on his comments comparing Donald Trump to a dictator.  

The House Majority Whip  told CNN: ‘I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office. 

‘And that is why the American people had better wake up. I know a little bit about history, and I know how countries find their demise. It is when we fail to let democracy, and the fundamentals of which is a fair, unfettered election.’

Trump had on Thursday suggested delaying the November election until ‘people can properly, securely and safely vote’. In March last year South Carolina Democrat Clyburn said the Trump family are among the ‘greatest threats to democracy’ in his lifetime.

Clyburn had told PBS on Friday: ‘I have been saying now for about three years that this president doesn’t plan to have an election. He’s not planning to give up the office. 

‘He thinks that the American people will be duped by him, like the people of Germany was duped by Adolf Hitler.’ 

He added Sunday: ‘I feel very strongly that this man has taken on strong-arm tactics. And I feel very strongly that he [Trump] is Mussolini, Putin is Hitler.’

Clyburn is the third-ranking Democrat in the House. In March last year he said: ‘Adolf Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany. And he went about the business of discrediting institutions to the point that people bought into’ it.

‘Nobody would have believed it now. But swastikas hung in churches throughout Germany. We had better be very careful.’
