Donald Trump compares Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Eva Perón in a new book, American Carnage. He said he first saw the freshman lawmaker “ranting and raving like a lunatic on a street corner” and thinks “she knows nothing.”
Trump said she has “a certain talent,” The Guardian reports. “That’s Evita,” he said.
“Perón, known popularly as Evita, was an actor married to Argentinian president Juan Perón who rose to fame as a champion of working-class and female voters before dying of cancer in 1952, aged 33,” The Guardian reports.

It’s easier to move the focus from Argentina to Chile.
Then, Trump becomes Augusto Pinochet and Melania becomes Lucía Hiriart.
