Some words of advice to the Americans from someone who has been governed by politicians like Trump.
Americans, we in Italy often look at you as a model; we still thank you for our freedom after WWII, our economy depends on yours, we might not always see eye-to-eye, but we respect you. That’s why we are having a difficult time understanding how Trump can be the new rising star of your political galaxy. When I read about his political campaign, as an Italian, I have a constant feeling of deja-vu: because we have been there and, you remember, you used to laugh (rightfully so) at our politicians. So before all is said and done, let me refresh your memory on what you might be signing up for.
