Blumenthal wrote a brilliant and well-resourced article for the London Review of Books about the history of the Trump family and  the personal anxieties of Donald Trump, as expressed in his own words. His statements are documented. It may be the  most comprehensive article you will  read on: 'What Makes Donald Run?'  ' Piles of books will be devoted to trying to make sense of him and the enduring blight he left behind! It will grow after investigative journalists have spent years diving for hidden records, exploring subterranean corporations but never reaching the dark ocean bottom. Reckoning with Trump means descending into the place that made him. What he represents, above all, is the triumph of an underworld of predators, hustlers, mobsters, clubhouse politicians and tabloid sleaze that festered in a corner of New York City, a vindication of his mentor, the Mafia lawyer Roy Cohn,.'
