Every other national politician has come up through the ranks and is driven by a quest for Power to control Policy. trump never has cared about policy unless it directly affected his plans. In older, pre 2016 interviews he would answer policy question without thought and tended towards what he likely heard on the NYC TV news - mildly liberal. He does not have a policy bone in his body. He really does not care about policy or politics. Like every other con man he sells you what ever you want. He is a narcissist who is driven to make money to be a bigger man. I believe the reason he ran for the presidency is to make money. To a great extent, the President and VP are exempt from most conflict of interest laws. Trump is not putting his wealth into a trust lake every other present has done for decades. It is perfectly legal for him to propose having the federal government buy the block across from trump tower, tear down what is there and put in a national park to increase the value of his tower. There is noting illegal from trump threatening republican congressional leadership with putting Elizabeth Warren on the supreme court unless they build such a park for him. Let me take a flyer and say that trump's plan is to use the presidency to become the first trillionaire bythe end of his first term. That means he has to make $684,931,506 per day. That is a lot of money to shake the county down in a day, but heck he is a hard worker. This guy is going to be like Silvio Berlusconi on a yuge dose of steroids. There is the whole social security trust fund that can be channeled into a new trump security investment company, because who would be smarter to mange the money??? I do think the republicans in congress will get their way with policy as they have leverage, but so does trump to get paid for every bill they want signed. I fear that in four years we will have an empty treasury and and caveman republican policies with supreme court seat sold to the highest bidders. Want a supreme that likes patents, no problem, just make the highest bid.
