Trump always lashes out when he’s cornered. He told me so years ago – NZ Herald

President Trump spent the early hours of Sunday the way he has so many mornings since he took office: watching Fox News and tweeting in ways that seem impulsive, unmoored from reality and potentially self-destructive. In less than two hours, he managed to criticise his own FBI; peddle a new conspiracy theory; attack James Comey, Hillary Clinton and ABC; and draw more attention to the Russia probe that has already implicated several of his aides.

As someone who spent hundreds of hours observing Trump so I could write The Art of the Deal, I find his increasingly extreme behaviour entirely consistent and predictable.
