(2) Trump doesn’t dwell on past foibles. Some may consider this habit a fault, but I believe it’s badly needed in a modern America where people love sitting on psychologists’ couches endlessly replaying their lives and obsessing over every bad episode in it.

Made a mistake? That’s okay. Learn from it and move on—quickly.

(3) Trump cherishes excellence. Everything he does has to be the best, the biggest, the boldest. Yes, he sometimes overdoes it (is it really a big deal if Obama had a larger inauguration crowd than he did, considering that 91 percent of Washington, D.C. voted for Hillary?). But when is the last time we had a president who loved excellence so much that he couldn’t tolerate settling for second best?
