Congresswoman Shot At Jonestown sees similarities between cult leader Jim Jones and former President Donald Trump

Dem rep who was wounded at Jonestown massacre sees similarities between cult leader Jim Jones and former President Donald Trump

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), who was shot by members of the Peoples Temple during the 1978 Jonestown Massacre, says she sees similarities between cult leader Jim Jones and former President Donald Trump

“You look at Donald Trump, a charismatic leader, who was able to continue to talk in terms that appealed to those who were disaffected, disillusioned and who were looking for something, much like those who became part of Jim Jones’ congregation, the Peoples Temple,” Speier said. “They were lost souls, and the only difference between Jim Jones and Donald Trump is the fact that we now have social media. So all these people can find themselves in ways that they couldn’t find themselves before.”
