    It has been alleged with various sources that Trump did not want to become President and his wife cried when he won.

    Who here believes that?

    That had been discussed for months. The part in the book Fury and F***heads or whatever merely matches old news. His behavior since becoming president, including doing pretty much everything that he chastised Obama and Clinton for via Twitter over the past few years, are not the actions of someone expecting to face the same scrutiny.

    It is hard to get into the mind of someone whose already limited faculties are further diminished by senility and mental decay. It is clear, however, that Trump didn't expect to win (despite polls giving him a good chance at winning), and losing certainly would have been a better outcome for him.

    As it is, he was figuratively nearly killed with the "Now put up or shut up!" stick.

    This is why he keeps going back to his base. They still worship him, no matter what. Maybe they see him as "one of their own" who actually made a few bucks despite his crippling stupidity.

    everyone

    not just because of the book. the book merely confirms what everyone's thinking.

    Trump wanted people to pay attention to him run for 15 minutes and then spend the next 4 years on TV telling everyone how the current president is horrible and how he would have done a much better job if only the media/establishment/illuminati didn't ally to stop him from being elected. Not in his (or everyone's) wildest dreams did he think he actually has a chance

    I find it odd that both Trump and Hillary had the same type of reaction regarding the same election outcomes.

    Having said that, I would much rather have a reluctant President than I would someone like Hillary who becomes psychotic cuz she lost.

    The only other reluctant President I can think of would be George Washington.

    I don't believe you. Your support for President Trump, however reluctant you may pretend it to be, consigns you to the world's laughingstock for the remainder of your life, your desperate whataboutisms notwithstanding of course.

    I suspect that Donald Trump never seriously expected to have to govern the USA.
    Beneath all his bluster and grandiose self-delusion, Donald Trump might have bit of
    awareness that he's not up to the job.

    I expect that Donald Trump will use the Presidency to enrich himself and his family.

    yeah I've heard that is the best way for a billionaire to come up...LMFAO! Damn what some fools here. And discussing a book the author himself admits is not true...

    Trump's already doing that, and quite blatantly so. American democracy is notoriously weak and its anti-corruption legislation laughably lax - but it is so weak, and so lax that Trump will survive his first term? That remains to be seen. Trump would have certainly been at lower risk of dodgy financial dealings being exposed while still a private citizen, and he would have been able to spend the next few years golfing and living in comfort before being hospitalized.

    1. We only have his word for it that he's an actual billionaire, and not someone who looks like one but is actually in extreme debt (and thus has negative equity).
    2. You saw his tax returns? The rest of us haven't.
    3. He charges the Secret Service to protect his ample bottom while he is at his own properties every weekend, raking in the big bucks from that.
    4. Do you have a source that says the author admits the book isn't true, or is that FOX "news" stuff?

    Seriously?

    Can you EVEN imagine the screaming in the press had he lost?
