 Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Tuesday dismissed recent comments by various public figures comparing him to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, calling the comparisons “terrible” and defending the need to be vigilant about threats to national security.

“I don’t know about the Hitler comparison. I hadn’t heard that, but it’s a terrible comparison. I’m not happy about that, certainly,” Trump said in an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday. “I don’t want that comparison, but we have to be strong. We have to be vigilant.”

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, comedian Louis C.K. and former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman are among the people who have compared Trump to Hitler because of the rhetoric he has used throughout his campaign.
