I'd say he's more of a bombastic, posturing narcissist. OTOH, I'm obviously not the first to notice at least a physical resemblance to a certain earlier individual with most of the same character traits, so you may be right: https://www.google.com/search?q=trump+mussolini+image&rlz=1C1GCEA_enUS772US813&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjT0KLz-q7dAhVR1qwKHbrVDwQQsAR6BAgEEAE&biw=1366&bih=662
They're both big fans of the 'raised, jutting chin with a frown' look. As for Musk, I'd be more impressed with his benevolence if Tesla's work environment, especially in the factory, didn't violate pretty much every tenet of work/life balance there is. It's possible to be driven and not be an asshole. Especially recently, Elon seems to have gone over the edge more than a little - I mean, aside from the toke, what the hell is the whole vendetta (with absolutely no evidence presented, mind) about that British cave diver about, not to mention some of his comments about short sellers have me wondering just when he'll start rolling ball bearings in his hand and raving about strawberries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlV3oQ3pLA0
