I have had both brains cells in a continuous conversation to discover the reason "The Donald" would run for president. It is not about patriotism nothing in his past or business dealings are America First. It is not about making money as he has said he is rich, very rich; he can already manipulate legislation to benefit his international and national dealing, to quote Trump "I need politicians". In no way is it a sense of duty to serve other Americans, The Donald doesn't serve anybody. It could be about greed for power and recognition but he is already "THE" Donald. Maybe he just wants to be loved but the presidential position isn't really conducive to that. Then the two got to talking about his thin skin, his lashing out at any little slight, his twitter wars he tends to use a grenade to kill a cockroach. Go back and take a look at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Association dinner, he took a scorching.
You know Trump's ego was sitting there thinking I'll show you I'm going to become president and undo your legacy because I'm The Donald nobody talks about me that way
Meyers said"Trump was running for president I just assumed he was running as a joke" you know Trump's ego was saying I'll show a a jike you little weaselly wussy boy.
Trump doesn't want to be president he wants to get even.
