PreviewThe Trump family was wealthy and privileged, but they were also very dysfunctional. Donald Trump’s mother was absent, and his father was controlling and authoritative. He wanted his children to fulfill his expectations, and when his eldest son, Freddy, failed to live up to his high demands, he turned his attention to Donald, whom he openly favored over Freddy. Fred Sr. encouraged Donald’s bullying, egoism, and greed, and Donald was always seeking his father’s approval. This has shaped him into the person he is as an adult and as a president.
