Trump has built a wall between himself and truth and decency.
A must read. for anyon etrying to get a handle on this election
Some believe that Trump's unusual campaign tactics are an indicator that he ran as a lark to make it easier for Hillary Clinton to win. I don't think that's true. I think his self-confidence is able to overcome reality checks that would give pause to those endowed with a lesser ego. He can look at polls that show he is not doing well in the general election, for example, and conclude that the issue is that he took advice from people suggesting that he rein in some of his more extreme rhetoric. He doubles down on the drama.
He had wealth handed to him and repeatedly sought to forge relationships with people of questionable character in order to grow wealth. He's not interested in steady growth if a shady deal will give access to a high risk/high reward scenario. Leaders who have to come up through the ranks are more often forced into better socialization skills.
All told, between this book and current events, I am more confident in my conclusion that Trump's moral compass is under-developed.
I definitely recommend this book as an informative and well-written overview of some of the things Trump has been doing over the last few decades. Definitely makes me more interested in having Trump release his tax documents.
