London's former mayor is fighting for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, but his most recent attempt to prove that point has gained him a lot of criticism.
Boris Johnson, who's a current member of the U.K. Parliament, said in an interview with The Telegraph that the EU shares a common thread with Hitler — a desire for a powerful superstate — though he did note the EU is using "different methods."
His comments come amid the ongoing "Brexit" debate. On June 23, British voters will decide whether to remain in the EU.
