During the final presidential debate, things got tense between President Trump and Democrat nominee Joe Biden while discussing the topic of foreign policy. President Trump emphasized the upside of having an amicable relationship with foreign leaders when Joe Biden made a bizarre comment bringing up Adolf Hitler.
President Trump commented about his civil relationship with North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, noting that former President Obama had warned Trump the U.S. could be in danger of entering a war with the country soon. Four years later and there is no war between the U.S. and North Korea.
President Trump said, “we’re not in a war, we have a good relationship. Having a good relationship with leaders of other countries is a good thing.”
Biden fired back with the strange comment, “that’s like saying we had a good relationship with Hitler before he in fact invaded Europe.”

Biden’s comment shocked viewers who were quick to express their disdain for the outlandish comment.
Did Joe Biden just say we have a good relationship with Hitler at one point? No we did not, Joe.

Pretty sure the relationship btw. FDR and Hitler was … not good.

So… was Biden's crack about having great relations with Hitler just a brain fart, or did he and his handlers actually work out that line in advance, thinking it would play well?
