Trump critics are accusing the Trump Campaign of selling a shirt with a “Nazi-Like” symbol on it.
The anti-Trump Republican PAC the Lincoln Project tweeted a side by side comparison of the Nazi symbol and the symbol on the Trump “America First” T-shirt.

Per Yahoo News, the Trump campaign has dismissed the allegations as “moronic” according to the Daily Caller.
The Anti-Defamation League lists the Nazi eagle as a hate symbol that was later appropriated by neo-Nazis and white supremacists after World War Two. Where the swastika is forbidden, it is replaced by SS bolts, a Celtic cross, or is left blank.
Trump & Pence are proudly displaying a Nazi-inspired shirt on their official campaign website.
They are promoting genocidal imagery yet again — just days after President Trump retweeted a video of a supporter chanting “white power.”
