Donald Trump’s ego-obsesion seems to be in overdrive.
An interview from ABC News: Trump: ‘I Can Be the Most Presidential Person Ever’ Other Than Lincoln
Mr President, I know you’re only five days in. Has it changed you?
Trump: I don’t want to change too much. Um, I’ve had a wonderful life and wonderful success. I want to make this a great success for the American people, and for the people that put me in this position.
So I don’t want to change too much.
I can be the most presidential person ever, other than possibly the great Abe Lincoln, all right.
But I can be the most presidential person. But I may not be able to do the job nearly as well if I do that.
So what is it going to be, the most presidential person ever, or get the job done well, make it a great success for the American people?
From the Guardian, which says that Trump did presidential successfully in a joint media conference with Theresa May:
Trump and May’s press conference – Snap verdict: So, Donald Trump can act presidential. After a week that has seen multiple instances of Trump outraging Washington norms, he managed to get through a press conference lasting about 20-odd minutes sounding measured and reasonably diplomatic.
The trick will be whether he can keep that up for another three years and 51 weeks,
