I blogged about the article on Trump in the New Yorker in 1997, the one which concludes that Trump has no soul. But what really helps in understanding why the government is in such chaos since Trump became president is to know that this is the way Trump likes it:
One day, when I was in Trump’s office, he took a phone call from an investment banker, an opaque conversation that, after he hung up, I asked him to elucidate.
“Whatever complicates the world more I do,” he said.
“It’s always good to do things nice and complicated so that nobody can figure it out.”
