Nikita Khrushchev quote outs Donald Trump as supreme leader wannabee

Reported in Trump Embraces ‘Enemy of the People,’ a Phrase With a Fraught History.  (The New York Times, 2/26/2017)
Nina Khrushcheva, the great-granddaughter of Mr. Khrushchev and a professor of international affairs at the New School in New York, said the phrase was “shocking to hear in a non-Soviet, moreover non-Stalinist setting.” Her great-grandfather, she said, “of course also used Soviet slogans and ideological idioms but still tried to stay away from sweeping denunciations of whole segments of the Soviet population.”
