A Donald Trump adviser has come out and said that the president’s reason for siding with Democrats on the debt ceiling deal was because he wanted to gain followers after finally realizing that people “f**king hate him.”
According to Axios:
“A Trump adviser says that after a tumultuous seven months in office, it had finally dawned on the president: ‘People really f@&@ing hate me.’ For someone who has spent his life lapping up adulation, however fake, it was a harsh realization. This is a man with an especially acute need for affirmation.”
Trump is the kind of person that will do just about anything for people to like him. Trump didn’t side with Democrats because he believed in their policy, he sided with them thinking that it would make him more popular.
Like PoliticusUSA reported:
“Trump is like a child forever craving parental approval. He will do anything to be liked, which includes selling his own party out for some good cable news coverage.”
