Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) faced backlash after seeming to compare Trump supporters to neo-Nazis.
Dean, a 2004 Democratic presidential candidate and former head of the DNC, tweeted about a Georgia neo-Nazi rally that included large, burning swastikas.

Dean tweeted “Trump base voters” in reference to the rally.
