In terms of mannerism and worldview, Donald Trump's is very much similar with that of Italy's former Prime Minister, Benito Mussolini. If there's any justice in the world, hopefully, they'll also end the same way.

It's not that exaggerated. Trump scapegoated the Muslims to get in power and Hitler scapegoated the Jew where is the difference?

Henry VIII of England
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_VIII_of_England

"As he aged, Henry became severely obese and his health suffered, contributing to his death in 1547. He is frequently characterised in his later life as a lustful, egotistical, harsh, and insecure king.[3] He was succeeded by his son Edward VI."

"Domestically, Henry is known for his radical changes to the English Constitution, ushering in the theory of the divine right of kings to England. Besides asserting the sovereign's supremacy over the Church of England, he greatly expanded royal power during his reign. Charges of treason and heresy were commonly used to quash dissent, and those accused were often executed without a formal trial, by means of bills of attainder. He achieved many of his political aims through the work of his chief ministers, some of whom were banished or executed when they fell out of his favour."

"Henry is best known for his six marriages and, in particular, his efforts to have his first marriage, to Catherine of Aragon, annulled. His disagreement with the Pope on the question of such an annulment led Henry to initiate the English Reformation, separating the Church of England from papal authority and appointing himself the Supreme Head of the Church of England. Despite his resulting excommunication."

"He was an extravagant spender and used the proceeds from the Dissolution of the Monasteries and acts of the Reformation Parliament to convert into royal revenue the money that was formerly paid to Rome. Despite the influx of money from these sources, Henry was continually on the verge of financial ruin due to his personal extravagance as well as his numerous costly continental wars, particularly with Francis I of France and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, as he sought to enforce his claim to the Kingdom of France."

It seems very similar to me ... but I still believe the Hitler comparison better. Monarch ... Dictator ... six of one half a dozen of the other.

I know for a fact that there are users on this random forum that are smarter then he is. He's also very ego centric. I think actually emotional is a better word. He demands respect and when he doesn't get it he goes on tirades. A leader that comes to mind? I guess, a less intelligent and more narcissistic Tsar Nicholas II who is bound to have many of his Grigori Rasputins in the end.

http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-inauguration-parade-tanks-missile-launchers-2017-1


During the preparation for Friday’s transfer-of-power, a member of Trump’s transition team floated the idea of including tanks and missile launchers in the inaugural parade, a source involved in inaugural planning told The Huffington Post. “They were legit thinking Red Square/North Korea-style parade,” the source said, referring to massive military parades in Moscow and Pyongyang, typically seen as an aggressive display of muscle-flexing.

The military, which traditionally works closely with the presidential inaugural committee, shot down the request, the source said. Their reason was twofold. Some were concerned about the optics of having tanks and missile launchers rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue. But they also worried that the tanks, which often weigh over 100,000 pounds, would destroy the roads.

The Pentagon didn’t reject all of Trump’s ideas. At the request of the president-elect, there are five military flyovers ― one for each branch of the armed services ― planned for Friday’s inaugural parade, Pentagon spokesman Maj. Jamie Davis told HuffPost.

Military flyovers are not typically part of inaugural parades. Outgoing President Barack Obama did not use any military aircraft at either of his inaugurations, the Defense Department official said. There were no flyovers at President George W. Bush’s 2005 inauguration, but he did have a flyover during his 2001 opening ceremony, which occurred two days before the inauguration. President Ronald Reagan considered including flyovers in his second inauguration in 1985, but one never materialized, the official said. Before that, the last president to include military flyovers as part of his inauguration was President Harry Truman in 1949.

You guys all complain now, but when were back at 4% growth (if not more), terror attacks are non existent, everyone actually has a good paying job and America isn't war mongering in the middle east and toppling regimes, not only will you not be complaining, but you wont even be thinking about Donald Trump.

Cause vowing to increase the size of the military, build a wall across the entire southern border, and returning to the tariff wars of the 1920's is totally in line with economic growth.

"Domestically, Henry Obama is known for his attempted radical changes to the English American Constitution, ushering in the theory of the divine right of kings to England a swath of Executive Orders. Besides asserting the sovereign's supremacy over the Church of England American People, he greatly unconstitutionally expanded royal Executive power during his reign. Charges of treason and heresy were commonly used to quash dissent, and those accused were often executed without a formal trial, by means of bills of attainder drone strike. He achieved many of his political aims through the work of his chief ministers, some of whom were banished or executed when they fell out of his favour."
