As Trump Is Sworn In, Biographer Makes STUNNING REVELATION About Legitimacy Of His Presidency

As Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States in Washington D.C., there’s one thing that is constantly his mind, and is driving him nuts: “He has a deep fear he’s not a legitimate president,” revealed Michael D’Antonio, his biographer.

After more than two months of Trump’s shocking rise to power, Politico Magazine asked Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio the questions that were on everyone’s mind: What happens next? Will the unabashedly self-promoting and self-obsessed businessman transform himself into a selfless and dignified president of the nation he was elected to lead? In a word, no.

“I would say not in the least,” D’Antonio said. “I think Donald Trump measures himself by the number of norms that he can violate. The more he can get away with, the more he can thumb his nose at convention, the more powerful he feels.”

He added: “Trump is not going to be that concerned with the actual competent administration of the government. It’s going to be what he seems to be gaining or losing in public esteem. So almost like a monarch. The figurehead who rallies people and gets credit for things.”

Then he made the stunning revelation:

“One thing I think that we have overlooked as we see Trump trying to delegitimize others is what I suspect is a feeling he has inside that nothing he’s ever achieved himself has ever been legitimate.”

He continued:

“This is a person who has never known whether anybody wants to be around him because he’s a person they want to be around or they want to be around his money. And since he’s promoted himself as this glamorous, incredibly wealthy person, that’s the draw he’s always given.”

“So he doesn’t know if he has any legitimate relationships outside of his family, and that’s why he emphasizes family. … He’s always kind of gaming the system— not winning on the merits. And even his election was with almost 3 million fewer votes than his opponent. So he has this deep fear that he is himself not a legitimate president, and I think that’s why he goes to such great lengths to delegitimize even the intelligence community, which is the president’s key resource in security, and he’s going to do this demeaning and delegitimizing behavior rather than accept what they have to tell him.”
