Haaretz: Trump Slammed for Praising ‘Good Genes’ at Rally, Accused of Promoting ‘Eugenics’

September 22, 2020

The “racehorse theory” is the idea that some human beings are born genetically superior to others. Halie Soifer, the Executive Director of The Jewish Democratic Council of America, slammed Trump’s comments, saying, “Again, Trump speaks about having “good genes.” He mentioned the “racehorse theory” and coupled it with a racist rant against refugees.”

Soifer continued, “This is eugenics. It was used by Nazis to justify genocide. Today, it’s used by white nationalists – & apparently the @POTUS – to justify hate.”
