17. And also narcissitic.

"Well, that's enough about me. Let's talk about you. What do you think about me?"

Trump's mind is zero-sum: you are either a winner or a loser, and it's vitally important that he is never seen as a loser. That' why he deflects blame for his own failures to other people (Obama is his go-to whipping boy).

Losing the 2020 election would be the ultimate failure, especially if he lost both the popular and electoral votes. And the more he tries to spin it, the truth is that he will have to sit quietly on the stage with a camera in his face as Joe Biden is sworn in as the next president.

I don't think the outgoing president even gets to say anything during the ceremony, which would kill him.
