Is Donald Trump the Silvio Berlusconi of the United States? “The promised “economic miracle” never materialized…. Italy’s average growth, measured by GDP at constant prices, was just 0.25 per cent a year.”   http://www.smh.com.au/comment/silvios-lessons-for-donald-20161123-gsw26l.html    Here is a tip from the Italian experience. “So long as the message remains anti-Trump, the message remains about Trump: Don’t let him become the only story that America has to tell.”    http://qz.com/841049/election-2016-america-has-elected-its-own-berlusconi-in-donald-trump-now-its-about-to-repeat-italys-biggest-mistake/
