You can’t be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure. I prefer to work each day and just see what develops. There is no typical week in my life.”One thing he does is watch television. Sometimes he sees somebody on television saying something nice about him and he calls them up, invites them over. Or he just calls in his advisers to talk about what came up on the TV news.
"Number one, he's lonely. It's part of why he's reached out to me," said one confidante of the president who Trump has contacted many times by phone since taking office. "He's always been a creature of routine."Creative/lonely... who knows? The man is an enigma, an enigma who watches TV and talks about the shows.
