Russian lawmaker: Trump is Hitler of time

Moscow, US President Donald Trump can be regarded as the No. 2 Adolf Hitler, a senior Russian politician said on Friday after the recent attacks on Syria.

The remarks came after the attacks the US in cooperation with France and Britain launched on some targets in Syria early Saturday.

Trump 'can be called Adolf Hitler No. 2 of our time because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union,' the Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti qouted Alexander Sherin, deputy head of the State Duma's defense committee, as saying.

According the news agency, The Nazi forces' opening attack against the USSR in 1941 was launched around 4 a.m.

He also said that the attack also should be called the No. 2 Belgrade attack as it was delivered against Russia.

Washington claims that the attack was a response to an alleged chemical weapon attack near Damascus. The US blames the attack on the government of Syria.

The attacks were delivered by the US just hours after a team of fact-finding was sent to Syria by Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the alleged chemical attack.
