Even more striking than Joe Biden’s comparison of President Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels was that after it, two Jewish leaders, Abraham Foxman and Deborah Lipstadt, supported his statement (“Biden: Trump ‘sort of like Goebbels,’ ‘more Castro than Churchill,’” Web, Sept. 28). One should be disappointed and surprised that these two authorities on the Holocaust have chosen to compare that atrocity to the workings of the Trump administration.

For any individual knowledgeable about both occurrences, drawing any comparison between the Holocaust and Trump is odious and certainly not backed by facts.

To the contrary, Mr. Trump has a record of support for Israel greater than all presidents since the time of Harry Truman, with Mr. Trump moving our embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and accepting the Israeli presence beyond the temporary truce lines of 1967. Unfortunately, the anti-Semites and anti-Israel adherents will use the statements by Mr. Foxman and Ms. Lipstadt out of context to justify their hatred and their calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.
