20. Trump doesn't understand Trump.

and understanding doesn't even matter to him. He has no insight into himself, only coping mechanisms.

I honestly think he was a victim of abuse himself, and many who grew up in that situation become abusers themselves, because they only know two roles: victim or abuser. His speech reflects this; he deifies strength, and hates weakness, real or perceived. He sees the universe as full of winners and losers. Winners are measured by their wealth and power. They deserve to rule. Losers are to be stomped on, for being losers.

Trump simply needs to be opposed, and his lies, policy inconsistencies, and incompetence need to be pointed out over and over in a rational manner. It will have it's effect.
