Bob Woodward and Walter Isaacson discuss the seeming world view of the president who appears to have the attitude that in order for him to win, others must lose. Woodward also discusses Trump’s words for Mattis in the early weeks of the Trump WH.
Whenever Trump makes a deal, he tries to make sure that he comes out a winner and everyone else comes out a loser. He wants to humiliate his parter.
He is at heart a small family owned business owner who competes against bigger players and cares about cash flow and his balance sheet. Politics is not about cash flow.
