93. He was using a word that has meaning other
than "The Holocaust" which is capitalized for a reason. Miriam Webster definition of holocaust is: "a thorough destruction involving extensive loss of life especially through fire <a nuclear holocaust>" so yes he was referring to an extensive loss of life other than "The Holocaust". It is correct use of language and cannot even remotely be compared to the display and exploitation of victims of The Holocaust in order for extremists to push a false point.
