'Good bloodlines!' Trump praises Henry Ford, motor pioneer whose antisemitism was admired by Hitler

Donald Trump praised the Ford Motor Company's founder Henry Ford a notorious antisemite for his "good bloodlines" during the president's visit to one of the automaker's Michigan plants.

The president said: "The company founded by a man named Henry Ford good bloodlines, good bloodlines. If you believe in that stuff?" Apparently addressing William Clay Ford, the company's executive chairman and great-grandson of Henry Ford, Mr Trump added: "You got good blood."

Following the success of his revolutionary manufacturing enterprise, Mr Ford had published dozens of articles reflecting his bigotry, including antisemitic conspiracies targeting the "international Jew", before he retracted his views in the 1920s.

But Mr Ford, admired by Adolf Hitler, received the Nazi Party's Grand Cross of the German Eagle a decade later in 1938 at the onset of the Second World War.

2. If you watch the video, you'll notice it wasn't part of his prepared remarks

He was going off the cuff.

It's what he really believes.

4. The entire company was anti-American

Henry Ford was pos not just with the Nazis but the right-wing Nationalist in Japan.

5. "Mr Ford had published dozens of articles reflecting his bigotry"

Shit, he could not get his drivel published in local papers so he BOUGHT the Dearborn independent to get it out there. He also showed Hitler how to maximize an assembly line to ramp up production.. Fucker was a traitor.. Good bloodlines my ass...
BUT since he was in the "I'm wealthy so I'm immune" club nothing happened. Especially when he changed over production from cars to bombers..
He got religion I guess.. saw the writing on the wall..
