“When his ability to charm hit a wall, he deployed another “business strategy”: throwing tantrums during which he threatened to bankrupt or otherwise ruin anybody who failed to let him have what he wanted.”
Mary L. Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man

“he makes his vulnerabilities and insecurities your responsibility: you must assuage them, you must take care of him. Failing to do so leaves a vacuum that is unbearable for him to withstand for long. If you’re someone who cares about his approval, you’ll say anything to retain it. He has suffered mightily, and if you aren’t doing all you can to alleviate that suffering, you should suffer, too.”
Mary L. Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man

“If he can keep forty-seven thousand spinning plates in the air, nobody can focus on any one of them. So there’s that: it’s just a distraction.”
Mary L. Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man

“The people with access to him are weaker than Donald is, more craven, but just as desperate. Their futures are directly dependent on his success and favor. They either fail to see or refuse to believe that their fate will be the same as that of anyone who pledged loyalty to him in the past. There seems to be an endless number of people willing to join the claque that protects Donald from his own inadequacies while perpetuating his unfounded belief in himself.”
Mary L. Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man

“By conflating my dropping out of college and his hiring me to write his book (while throwing in a fictional drug addiction), he concocted a better story that somehow had him playing the role of my savior.”
Mary L. Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man
