Mary Trump: “The costs and benefits of governing are considered in purely financial terms, as if the US Treasury were his personal piggy bank. To him, every dollar going out was his loss, while every dollar saved was his gain.” 👇🏽 (this book is so good)     source

Please read @MaryLTrump’s book, #TooMuchAndNeverEnough. Not for the headline grabbing bits already well publicized, but for the incisive, thorough, & devastating analysis of @realDonaldTrump’s deeply damaged psyche. Folks, he’s not going to get better. We are in serious trouble.     source
