Italy's Berlusconi says Trump is just Like Him

For once I agree with Berlusconi , the similarities run deeper than their orange faces.

The tax affairs of both men have been subject to scrutiny: Trump says paying none "makes me smart" and refuses to release his returns. Berlusconi was found guilty in 2013 of fiscal fraud, a conviction that effectively ended his political career.

Despite their own wealth and extravagant lifestyles, both present themselves as comfortable with and champions of ordinary people, as outsiders untainted by the perceived failures of established elites.

Both are resolutely politically incorrect and have appeared at times to lack a self-restraint switch.
Trump had no problem mocking a disabled reporter. Berlusconi once likened a political rival to a concentration camp guard.

Both are twice-divorced. Berlusconi at age 80 lives with a girlfriend 50 years his junior; Trump, 70, is now married to former model, Melania, 46.
Both have been insulting to Barack Obama: Trump questioned the outgoing president's American-born credentials, Berlusconi has joked about him having "a good tan".

Separated at birth , the future could be written in the past.

Under the media tycoon, Italy's economy barely expanded, a chronic debt crisis worsened and the overall tax burden grew as he failed to implement long-overdue structural reforms.

I hope that Trump is smarter than Berlusconi.

Otherwise the US is in trouble.

Very much so, but I believe Berlusconi to be better with finances while Trump is better in starting businesses.

Truth to be told, knowing where you stand on foreign policy issues, I am not surprised at all that you support a lying, corrupted, murderous criminal that's Hillary Clinton.

And as for this thread...dunno. Give me a call when Berlusconi does something that matters. Trump had already proven himself to be 10x times better than him. If anything, comparing the scandals, I think Hillary Clinton and Berlusconi have a lot more in common, as they will soon once had shared a prison cell, and they both managed to get away with their crimes

Then you may be surprised to learn that I don't support Hillary Clinton.

You would be one of those people who don't support Hillary Clinton, but would vote for her in order to stop Trump? I don't buy it

But either way, don't you think that Hillary Clinton and Berlusconi has got a lot more in common than him and Trump? If Trump does what he promised he'd do, and that's to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton's case, then both Berlusconi and Hillary would be convicted criminals

Faced with the choice I would either vote for a third party or not vote.

Clinton may be distasteful but I think she's less dangerous than a loose cannon like Trump , you'll never know where or when he's going to go off.
A declining US economy is bad for the world not just the US, just because Trump is a businessman doesn't mean he can run a country.

Everything that we've seen from Hilary Clinton show that she's a lunatic who's incapable of handling a bloody emails, let alone a country that's the USA.

But we will see. Trump has managed to prove everyone wrong, time and time again. Let's hope he does the same this time as well

Clinton knows how things are done.

Yeah, yeah - - I know - - the opposition thinks we need to shake things up and break the system.

I survived 2 corporate take overs. Both came in with "We're gonna change everything" - - yada, yada.

BOTH - - within a year went right back to how things were before they came.

Systems fall into place because they work. "Trim the fat" - - sure. But, take down the system? Not gonna happen.

IMO - - Trump can't help being Trump. He's gonna step on the wrong toes.

What exactly has Trump proven everyone wrong about?

That he's a performer, caters to his audience, who are clueless to who/what he really is?

He hasn't done anything yet.

This guy was a total puppet of Bush (and by extension Bush's puppet masters) and an obedient NATO hound.

If I were Trump id take this as a profound insult.
