3. Then add to that the way his father groomed him into being corrupt

To win with, and being ruthless to anyone in his way just made him worse with his disorder.

4. As I recall, then looking up the Diagnostic Statistical Manual criteria for the diagnosis

of narcisstic personality disorder - there were 9 criteria. A person meeting 5 of the 9 criteria would be diagnosed as narcisstic.

trump was 9 for 9!!!

'The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5, 2013) indicates that a person with NPD possesses at least five of the following nine criteria, typically without possessing the commensurate personal qualities or accomplishments for which they demand respect and status:

Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g. exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).
Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
Believes that he/she/they is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).
Requires excessive admiration.
Has a sense of entitlement (i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations).
Is interpersonally exploitative (i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends).
Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him/her/them.
Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.' - Wiki
