People who had business with President Donald Trump recognized him for his egotism. My niece had the opportunity doing business with him as a representative of a distinguished law firm. She noted pictures of him in his office and an aura of a person who thinks highly of himself. He took the job as President of the USA as part of his ego trip. He wants to be the best President in the history of the USA. His incentive is not only love of America but to make for himself a name to be written in history books about Donald Trump the best President in the history of the country. He wants to confront issues which were ignored by previous presidents like Jerusalem, Iran Nucleur threat, economic improvements, North Korea and The Wall of Mercy. Other presidents may have been more loyal faithful lovers of America, than President Trump but less interested in being different less egotistic. Trump is even accused of not paying his taxes.
