Chinese Born 'Female Trump' Combines Guns and Qipao

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a lot to take in, regardless of your political position. But are you ready for a 'female verison of Trump'? 

Sue Googe is a Chinese American, Tea Party endorsed woman running for Congress in hopes of representing North Carolina's Fourth District, and she's currently in the lead with 76 percent of the votes, according to the Global Times. If she wins, she will become the first US congresswoman born in Chinese mainland

Unlike Trump, Googe is a female and an immigrant — two demographic groups that Trump is not exactly known for favoring. She also did not receive 'a small loan of a million dollars' from her dad. In fact, she battled poverty in rural Hainan, where she grew up before moving to the United States when she was only 11 years old.

But Googe isn't dubbed the female Trump for nothing. Polticial similarities would not even be enough to earn such a 'gold-plated' title; Googe is also very much like Trump in terms of personality. The two have expressed mutal support on social media, with Googe telling the GT, 'We have similarities in our characters and have common political ideas.'

In terms of politics, Googe is exactly like Trump in that she has has zero political background and her past success lies in real estate. She is a stout conservative who believes in limited government, personal responsibility and border control. And as you can probably tell from the picture below, Googe is a big supporter of gun ownership. 

Tea Party Star to Watch: Sue Googe

Googe also promotes distrust of politicians and believes she will 'make America great again.'

Googe can't be compared to Trump if she doesn't have a controversial personality, amirite? She is known to speak bluntly and not give a frickle-frackle about what other people think of her.

Her campaign logo, for one, has stirred significant controversy, prompting The Verge to ask, 'Will Google sue Sue Googe?' The font of her last name in the campaign logo resembles Google's logo exactly, just without the letter 'l'. Googe even slanted the last letter 'e' to be twinsies with Google. Coincidence? We think not.

Many Chinese Americans strongly dislike Googe and are calling her a 'demoness.' Googe has even acknowledged that Chinese immigrants tend to leave negative comments on her social media pages. "I became the headline on qq.com overnight and half of the ten thousand comments said I was ugly," she wrote in one update on her WeChat account, where she posts nearly every day about her team and campaign.

Beyond Googe's similarities with the controversial Trump, one thing is for sure: Asian Americans and Chinese Americans are severely underrepresented in US politics. If Googe and her strange counterfiet logo win the seat in Congress, we may finally see a bit more representation of Asian Americans in US government.
