Donald Trump is running in the primaries of the Republican Party, in view of the 2024 US Presidential Elections. A few weeks ago, the former US President Trump called his opponents parasites or vermin, attracting the ire of former tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

Trump is conducting a massive electoral campaign, presenting himself as an antagonist of communists, Marxists, radical left fascists who, according to Trump himself, live like parasites within the US borders.
In the podcast On with Kara Swisher, Navratilova explained: "Well, we are now, latest iteration is we are called vermin.

So you and I are vermin. So, you look up vermin in the dictionary, it's not so nice. I mean, it's totally echoing Mein Kampf and the rhetoric that came from fascists, including 'press is the enemy of the people', and he's just magnifying it.

I mean, the similarities, just finished reading, actually, I haven't quite finished reading Prequel by Rachel Maddow about fascism in the 20s and 30s in America. Fascinating. America first. The similarities are off the charts. Off the charts."

Navratilova still attacks Trump

In these days, the former tennis legend is expressing about Trump's aggressive campaigne.

Trump recently tried to downplay the results of the 2020 election at the Save America rally. In his speech at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Saturday, December 2, Trump attacked the Democratic Party for refusing to reject the January 6, 2021 electoral votes, the day a crowd of his supporters took to the streets stormed Capitol Hill.

Martina Navratilova expressed her disdain through an X post saying how Trump's brain is gone, reposting the US president's media conference shared by @MeidasTouch: "Yikes. His brain is gone… bye bye." Not only. Only a few days ago, the former tennis legend had attacked the supporters of the former US president who were hoping for a turning point in the sale and possession of weapons.
