Nikita Krushchev and Donald Trump. Both of these men have much in common. Both were bold and brash and at times rude and combative. They were both reformers in their respective countries. They both engaged in high stakes brinksmanship. They both made enemies. And they both appear to have people they believe they could trust who betrayed them and whose betrayal lead or might lead to their ouster. October 14, 1964. An important date. Research it.
