34. I agree

It gives him far too much credit. Trump is incapable of that kind of strategy or nuance. He is a very reactive, in-the-moment character. He does things impulsively feeding off of the attention that he gets.

Initially he may have had a vague agenda to get some publicity to promote the "Trump" brand, though he may have just been bored and looking for some kicks. He never thought he'd get this far, but he couldn't let go, because he really, really loves "winning". There is no need to deeply analyze Donald Trump - what you see is what you get. He's the buffoon at the end of the bar who just happens to have money. If he didn't, no one would pay a lick of attention to him.
