Combining this with his plan to forcibly deport 11 million people (about which I've written previously: https://plus.google.com/+YonatanZunger/posts/jj1hDhk9Cuh), and I think it's fair to say that Trump has at this point openly advocated policies which are only associated with the Nazi party. There's no longer anything particularly metaphorical about it, nor is there any reason to distrust his honesty.
Some articles have referred to this as him going "full Godwin," but that's really not appropriate: Godwin's Law is about inappropriate metaphorical comparisons to Nazis, not people actually advocating National Socialism.

h/t for finding the story.
In AscII and complete for cut-and-paste purposes:
Göring: Why, of course, the people don't want war.Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.
Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.
Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
(Some of these "adjectives to avoid" I quite like, and would suggest we strive to include more in reference letters for male students.)
