In this day of Italian general elections, it is the right time to mention the Italian Trump's precursor: Berlusconesque himself. You can even take a quiz:

Trump or Berlusconi? Who Said It? - Bloomberg

There are plenty of parallels between Silvio Berlusconi and Donald Trump: both are tycoons-turned-politicians who espouse lower taxes, less government regulation, and tighter controls on immigration; both have frequently boasted about their multiple romantic partners; and both evince a high regard for themselves and Vladimir Putin. Turns out, they also say lots of things that are strikingly similar.
