Ecuador’s Rafael Correa looks forward to using President Trump (heaven forbid!) for propaganda,
The leftist Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa said a Trump presidency might be bad for the United States, but it could be good for Latin America. Especially its progressive political movements.
“I think it would be very bad for the U.S.,” Correa said of a possible President Trump, according to Telesur. “However, since Latin America is quite independent from the U.S., I think we may even see an increase in the progressive trend here. That would be a major positive of a Trump victory.”
Correa feels the Bern and likes Hillary,
The Ecuadorean president had high praise for both Democratic candidates running for president in the U.S., especially Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont – saying he is “breaking ways of thinking” with his anti-establishment politics.
I could not find a news source in English to confirm the following: This report (in Spanish) claims that Trump says he’d rather buy Ecuador rather than Peru because Ecuador would be cheaper to buy, and then he would name it Trump Nation. If it gets him off the ballot, I know people who would actually help him get there.
Crazy season indeed.
