Trump verses Castro?

There are troubling similarities between these two leaders. Both prefer to deliver long speeches than actually govern. Both think they are above the law. Both punish those who disagree with them. Both are populists who attract the disaffected and impoverished but their policies favor the bankers and the political elites instead of the working people. It's interesting to note that the history of populist leaders usually evolves into cruel dictatorship governments where those who speak out are jailed or murdered.
