MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: On May 20, former President Donald Trump shared a video on Truth Social promoting Nazi ideology 'Unified Reich' which provided Stephen Colbert, the host of 'The Late Show', with material for some humorous puns during his monologue on May 21.

As per The New York Times, the video, created by a Trump supporter, included a pledge that if Trump wins the presidency again in the upcoming election, it would lead to the "creation of a unified reich," making it deeply concerning for a US president to openly endorse white supremacist and fascist ideologies


It is crucial to emphasize that this event did indeed occur.

Highlighting the scenario, Colbert said during his monologue, "Trump’s minions aren’t being subtle about the authoritarian plans they have if Trump wins this next election,”

The host added, “Case in point, Trump posted a video touting how great a second Trump term would be, ending with ‘MAGA'. But in greyscale underneath it had a headline: ‘Industrial strength significantly increased, driven by the creation of a unified reich.’”

“Unified Yikes,” Colbert added, further saying, “That’s not a dog whistle, that’s a whistle made of dog. Evidently Maga now stands for Make America Germany around 1938.”

Colbert, side-eying the Trump campaign’s explanation, said, “A spokesperson for Trump’s campaign explained that this was not a campaign video. It was created by a random account online, and ‘reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word.

"Yes, they did not see it,” Colbert said, pronouncing “not see” like “Nazi.”

Reportdely, the video in question was removed from social media platforms on May 20 after facing significant backlash and criticism.

Unfortunately, this is not the first instance where former President Trump has shared or promoted content with similar ideologies.

Throughout his political career, Trump has frequently used anti-Semitic language and has even gone so far as to praise Adolf Hitler.

However, a spokesperson for Trump claimed that the video was "reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the President was in court."

One viewer pointed out, "Still using the same rundown old narrative that Trump is a nazi almost nine years later, give it a rest already."

A follower observed, "That would be ideal if it were true."
