An adviser for the pro-Trump group America First Policies was caught on camera saying, 'The only thing the Nazis didn’t get right is they didn’t keep f*cking going!'
Former Trump campaign adviser Juan Pablo Andrade, who now works for the pro-Trump dark money group America First Policies, was caught on camera expressing his support for Nazis and saying his only complaint is that they didn’t go further.
In a shocking Snapchat video obtained by Mediaite, Andrade can be heard yelling, “The only thing the Nazis didn’t get right is they didn’t keep f*cking going!”
The footage of the longtime Trump supporter was recorded in December 2017 during a conference held by the right-wing group Turning Point USA.
More than a thousand young conservatives attended the conference in West Palm Beach, Florida, according to Mediaite. The event featured speeches from pro-Trump figures including Donald Trump Jr., Seb Gorka, Tomi Lahren, Ben Shapiro, and Scott Walker.
As Mediaite notes, it’s unlikely that Andrade’s remarks were simply a crude joke, given that he was sitting in a room surrounded by white supremacists who endorse the hate he espoused.
“While it may seem odd that a political figure tied so closely to the Trump administration felt the freedom to endorse Nazi genocide on-camera, Andrade did so in distinctive company,” Mediaite reports. “Also in the hotel room was a close friend of Andrade’s, Caesar Svbervi, an alt-right activist who participated in the Charlottesville white supremacist march and has been filmed with Richard Spencer.”
According to Andrade’s LinkedIn profile, he has worked as a Policy Adviser for America First Policies since March 2017. Before that, he worked as an adviser on Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council and National Diversity Coalition. On his Twitter profile, Andrade describes himself as a “Trump campaign Surrogate” and a contributor to The Hill.
America First Policies was founded in January 2017 by six of Trump’s top campaign aides, including digital director Brad Parscale, former deputy campaign chairman David Bossie, and former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates (who has since has been indicted and pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe), along with Pence campaign advisers Nick Ayers and Marty Obst.
The newly released video isn’t the first time America First Policies has come under fire recently for racist comments made by one of the group’s top officials.
The group’s director of advocacy, Carl Higbie, resigned from the Trump White House earlier this year after he was caught making racist remarks on a radio show. Following his resignation from the White House, Higbie was promptly hired by America First Policies — the group that was founded to promote Trump’s vision.
