Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she's meeting with Trump 'soon' in Florida MORE's (R-Ga.) comments comparing coronavirus vaccines to the Holocaust.

“The instrumentalization of the tragedy of Jews who suffered, were humiliated, marked with a yellow star, isolated in ghettos & murdered during the Holocaust, in a debate on different systems that aim at protecting public health is a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decline,” the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted Tuesday.

The condemnation came after Greene said that "vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.".

“Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling.

Greene has attempted to defend her comments and claimed she wasn't making a comparison to the Holocaust.

Everyone should be concerned about the squads support for terrorists and discrimination against unvaxxed people," Greene stated. »
