I tend to agree with Mary Trump's assessment that he is a sociopath. One of the traits of sociopaths is that they do not have to believe their own lies, but just say them all with a straight face. And in Trump's case, say them over and over again in the hope that repetition makes them true. There is no empathy, no concern for the consequences of the lies and other actions, it all boils down to doing or saying whatever it takes to get their own way.

In an Oz ABC News article about whether criminal action could be taken against Trump, one comment was that it might not be worth alienating the remaining Trump supporters when Biden's aim is to unify America again.

Personally, it would give me some karmic/comeuppance style satisfaction to see him face the music, and I don't even live in America, but I think unifying America is a worthy ambition and it is desperately needed right now.
