I would say that Unicode LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A *is* a character, not
that it represents one.  ASCII Capital Letter A is the same character.
So Unicode LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A is ASCII Capital Letter A.

George W Bush is the president of the USA.  I don't have to say
"George W Bush" and "the president of the USA" represent the same
