Presidential parallels

Greg Satell of Forbes shares the eerie parallels between the 2016 American and 2010 Ukrainian presidential elections:

The parallels don’t stop […] Both Yanukovych and Donald Trump often expressed admiration for Vladimir Putin and his authoritarian approach. Both hired Paul Manafort to smooth out their image and hone their populist rhetoric. Once in office, Yanukovych jailed his opponent, just as Donald Trump threatened to do to Hillary Clinton.
