except to try to enhance any benefit he may get from Putin helping him stay in power.

Trump has a Cluster B personality disorder. It’s not an “illness.” It can’t be treated, and it can’t be cured. It simply is who he is—an emotional child—utterly selfish, mean, vindictive, impulsive, reckless, lazy, lacking guilt or conscience, with a grandiose sense of his own self-worth and with a very poor ability to predict the future consequences of his actions. That’s a Cluster B personality disorder. It’s what Trump IS. It cannot change. Calling it a “mental illness” is too kind. Illnesses can be treated. Their symptoms can be mitigated. There is no such hope when dealing with a Cluster B personality disorder.
