Perhaps you’ve wondered from time to time how failed, one-term former President Donald Trump handles pressure. He loves to brag that he’s a great deal maker (he isn’t) and that he’s a shrewd businessman (he never has been and never will be), and he also likes to put on a tough facade to suggest that he can handle any situation, no matter how daunting or terrifying.

For example, we know that Trump often had childish meltdowns in private and in public, berating White House staffers and all but bursting into tears when the chips were down. He also behaved like a spoiled toddler when he faced President Joe Biden in a debate.
