Islam Karimov takes Uzbekistan, rules like Donald Trump

Top Folders

Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Uzbekistan is taken over by Islam Karimov, a dictator who remains in office until his death in 2016. He is a kleptocratic autocrat who claims he will make Uzbekistan great again, calls news media “the enemy of the people,” hides national crises from the public, persecutes political opponents and minorities, and has “an intense yet strange relationship with Russia.” 

And he had a glamorous fashionista daughter who kept inserting herself into political affairs despite her utter lack of qualifications.
