Are you ready to experience four years of President Me? Ready or not, here he comes. The United States Presidency is the most powerful office in the world, and that makes the United States President the most powerful person in the world. In twelve short days, the most powerful person in the world will be Donald Trump. On whose behalf does he plan to exert his power? Day after day, he makes his focus clear on his Twitter account.
The victories of others are to be celebrated when they demonstrate loyalty to himself:
Congratulation to Jane Timken on her major upset victory in becoming the Ohio Republican Party Chair. Jane is a loyal Trump supporter & star

He uses his platform to elevate himself and denigrate others on shallow metrics of popularity:
Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got “swamped” (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for…being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary

He attributes others’ success to his own personal aura:
Jackie Evancho’s album sales have skyrocketed after announcing her Inauguration performance.Some people just don’t understand the “Movement”

He is obsessed with the size of his personal wins:
Various media outlets and pundits say that I thought I was going to lose the election. Wrong, it all came together in the last week and…..

He divides the world into his supporters and his enemies as he gloats, using the possessive in curious fashion:
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!

He thanks himself:
The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index for December surged nearly four points to 113.7, THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS! Thanks Donald!

He imagines the world revolves around him:
The world was gloomy before I won – there was no hope. Now the market is up nearly 10% and Christmas spending is over a trillion dollars!

He places himself at the center of a holiday:
Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: "In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity." So true!

He thinks of events in terms of what they do for him, not in terms of what they do for the nation:
The so-called "A" list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2016
It is clear that in 2017, the White House will be transformed into an altar for the glory of Donald Trump. 7 billion people are excluded from that limited vision.
