20. He is in fact delusional, regardless of any other factors

Trump is exceedingly subjective in relating to the world. His rational-objective understanding of 'what is' and motivations for 'I want' are limited due to his narcissistic psychology.

He may have developed reliable techniques to dominate others to get his needs met, but has no objectively observable humanity.
Delusions directly destroy the human trait of compassion.

The more "me" in one's mind, the less "We" and that elevation of the one "I" above all other "I"s, such that there is no other value beyond "Mine", is in fact a delusion.

LeBron James is just the latest example of an ongoing trope. Characters change, story is same. . nt Bernardo de La Paz Jul 2021 #30
