Who Fits This Description?

See if you can identify this famous politician by reading his description:

* I was born in one country, raised in another.
* My father was born in another country.
* I was not my father's only child.
* He fathered several other children with numerous women.
* I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
* My mother died at an early age from cancer.
* My father deserted me and my mother raised me
* I later wrote a book idolizing my father and not my mother.
* Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
* My own birth records were sketchy.
* No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
* I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
* I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.  
* I became active in local politics in my 30's 
* I became a candidate for national office in my 40s.  
* Everyone said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.  
* I had no real resume, little work history, and no job experience.
* I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me
* I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.
* At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy.
* I was very critical of my country in the last war, and took every opportunity to bash my country.
* I rose to national prominence because of my views on the country's economy.
* I told people that I had a really good plan for the economy.
* I said that every poor person would be fed and housed for free.  
* I knew which groups were responsible for getting us into this mess.  
* I blamed the free market, the banks and big corporations for creating all our problems.
* I knew we needed a socialist form of government.
* I encouraged people to hate and envy the rich.
* I called my campaign "A People's Campaign".  
* I offered the people “hope”, that together we could “change” our country and the world.
* I made speeches on behalf of the downtrodden, underprivileged, and the poor.

My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.  I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.

Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

And then world learned the truth.

Who am I?
If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE, you should be scared, very scared!
