Ebner weighs in on claim that likens Trump to Mussolini in PolitiFact

Michael Ebner

Michael Ebner, associate professor of history, was interviewed for the PolitiFact article "Madeleine Albright compares Mussolini, Trump on use of 'drain the swamp'." "The term the regime used for land reclamation was ‘bonifica,’" says Ebner. "In English, it might be translated as ‘reclamation,’ as in land reclamation, but was also used more generally by the regime for reclaiming the race or the state." 05/11/18
