Senator Ben Murray-Bruce took to his Facebook page today to a lenghty
piece he wrote ‘Like Trump Like Obasanjo’, where he compared US
president elect Donald Trump to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
According to Senator Bruce, Donald Trump and Obasanjo who can be brash

piece pleasantly stunned that what the mainstream media, what the establishment
and what the powers that be said could never happen has happened due to this
phenomenal man’s belief in himself when others did not believe in hm.
