Los Angeles Review of Books compares Trump with Moosbrugger in Musil’s novel here: https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/robert-musil-predicted-rise-donald-trump/
Meanwhile, I am continuing my study here of Furber as Trump in Omensetter’s Luck by Gass. For example, Furber, in this 1966 novel, builds a wall, grabs a woman’s private parts, is related to ‘tweetering’, has ‘fiddling finger’ in his hand mannerisms, is successful with his flock whatever he says or does, mispronounces Brackett Omensetter’s name (Barack Obama?) and more!
