At the end of my day I think he is just purely in it for himself. He is the type that thinks he who has most toys wins. And it is really immature with him. No concern for society just the toys.
I have no doubt President Trump is in it for the ego boost. I also have no doubt that President Trump will do the best job he can. His ego would allow nothing less.

Axelrod: 'No precedent? for Bannon?s NSC spot | TheHill

no precedent
Quote:
“Our access also came with limits. We were barred from some of the most sensitive meetings on the Afghanistan-Pakistan policy review so as to not inhibit discussions. Beyond that, Gibbs and I did not attend regular meetings of the NSC Principals committee or their deputies nor were we invited to weekly meetings on terrorist threats.”...
Quote:
...Trump signed an executive action last Saturday reorganizing the NSC that placed Bannon, who is Trump’s White House chief strategist and senior counselor, on the NSC.

Trump’s only true skill is the con; his only fundamental belief is that the United States is the birthright of straight, white, Christian men, and his only real, authentic pleasure is in cruelty. It is that cruelty, and the delight it brings them, that binds his most ardent supporters to him, in shared scorn for those they hate and fear: immigrants, black voters, feminists, and treasonous white men who empathize with any of those who would steal their birthright.~Serwer|The Atlantic
