Amid broad condemnation for his assertion that Adolf Hitler did not use poison gas “on his own people,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer called billionaire Jewish casino magnate Sheldon Adelson to apologize.

An Adelson spokesman confirmed the call, reported Alex Isenstadt, but did not explain the reason behind it.

Adelson is a major donor to conservative and Jewish causes. He is not the leader of any major Jewish organization. He does, however, have a special relationship with President Donald Trump: He got at Trump’s inauguration after pouring of cash into the campaign.

Spicer’s comments, made on the Jewish holiday of Passover, attempted to draw a contrast between Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the Nazi leader. “You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Spicer said. Asked for clarification, Spicer went on to refer to Nazi death camps as “Holocaust centers.”
