Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors this week sat down with the Los Angeles Times for a question and answer segment. During the interview, Cullors compared President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.
The Times asked Cullors if BLM would accept an invitation from Trump, should he extend it. She said they would decline the invite.
"We wouldn't, as a movement, take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn't have done that with Hitler," Cullors said. "Trump is literally the epitome of evil. All the evils of this country — be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia. And he has set out some of the most dangerous policies that not just impact this country but impacts the globe. And so for us, the answer is not to sit with Trump but to resist him. And to resist every single policy that he's implemented that impacts our communities."
According to Cullors, she wants to her children to know that she did everything she could to resist Trump's policies because they killed "our communities."
