As a sign of the deepening rift between Alex Jones and Donald Trump, the conspiracy theorist recently posted a video where he compared Ivanka Trump to Hillary Clinton.
Jones made his comments after Trump spoke out in regards to doing more to help Syrian refugees displaced by the ongoing civil war.
‘I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening and we have to come together and we have to solve it.’
When she was asked if that would include taking in refugees, something her father vehemently opposes, Trump said that it would be part of the conversation.
‘That has to be part of the discussion, but that’s not going to be enough in it of itself.’
In a video entitled “Ivanka Trump’s policies are sounding a lot like Hillary Clinton, and we didn’t want Clinton in the White House,” Jones said that the country did not elect Ivanka Trump and that she needs to stop trying to change her father’s mind. He also added that he thinks Ivanka is very talented and he has nothing against her as a person.
‘We didn’t elect her. And she’s over in Germany with Merkel, that opened the borders up for all the Islamisists … and she says for women we should let refugees in and that her dad’s wrong and she wants him to change his mind.’
Jones also said that President Trump is keeping his promises regarding ISIS and warned that Muslim countries are intolerant.
‘ISIS is being defeated right now … Trump’s keeping his promise on that.
‘And that’s a fact. That’s not Islamophobia. That’s the reality that they’re not tolerant.’
While Jones is correct that many Muslim countries are very intolerant of women, LGBT people and religious communities, it should not be forgotten that Jones is no beacon of tolerance himself. This is the man who once said that water was turning frogs gay.
Near the end of his video, Jones warned his supporters to not give up because their movement had grown a lot in 20 years.
‘Because we have come to being a tiny fringe movement against globalism a decade ago, 20 years ago, to now’
