Donald Trump on Monday again asked supporters at a rally to pledge their support to the GOP presidential candidate by raising their right hand amid suggestions from critics that the gesture resembles the “Heil Hitler” salute.
“I think we’re going to do great here,” Trump said minutes into his rally in Concord, N.C., after reading off a series of favorable polling figures and vowing to win support in the state ahead of its March 15 primary.
“Should we do the pledge? Should we do the pledge?” Trump asked supporters. “Raise your hand: ‘I swear I’m going to vote for Donald Trump next week, I swear.'”
