The two books — 1893s "Baron Trump's Marvelous Underground Journey" and 1896s "1900: or, The Last President — were written by Ingersoll Lockwood, an American political writer, lawyer and novelist long before the Trump we know today was busy making America great again.
But the connections between the books — one an illustrated children’s book and one a novel — and the current Trump administration are uncanny.
For starters, the main character in the first book shares a name with Trump's 11-year-old son Barron, despite the differences in spelling.

Amazing. He even writes about "Don" and a mob at a hotel on 5th Avenue in NYC. "Donald" Trump's hotel is on 5th Avenue, targeted by today's hooligans.

I'd love to come across an original copy of one of these books at the auction or a garage sale... :)
