Trump's government of one.

In late June, President Trump hosted a group of Native American tribal leaders at the White House and urged them to "just do it" and extract whatever they want from the land they control.

The exchange turned out to be an unusually vivid window into the almost kingly power that Trump sees himself as holding, and which he has begun describing with increasing bluntness. The scene was recounted by a source in the room and confirmed by another. The White House didn't dispute the story.

 

The chiefs explained to Trump that there were regulatory barriers preventing them from getting at their energy. Trump replied: "But now it's me. The government's different now. Obama's gone; and we're doing things differently here."

"So what I'm saying is, just do it."

There was a pause in the room and the tribal leaders looked at each other.

"Chief, chief," Trump continued, addressing one of the tribal leaders, "what are they going to do? Once you get it out of the ground are they going to make you put it back in there? I mean, once it's out of the ground it can't go back in there. You've just got to do it. I'm telling you, chief, you've just got to do it."

He had a thing about Jackson...

This entire trip was reportedly quite a disaster for Trump. After the McDonald's meal, Trump told his "entourage" to call the Japanese emperor and ask to see him. But a spokesman for the emperor responded he had no idea who Trump was. 

What's more, prior to his arrival in Tokyo, the Japanese media had apparently been under the impression Trump would be accompanied by the legendary pop superstar Michael Jackson. Trump reportedly told an associate Jackson was coming, who then leaked it to the press. But, like many of Trump's other claims, this turned out to be untrue. Consequently, as Trump arrived at the airport in Japan, the reporters there were quite disappointed to find he was not joined by the pop star. 

"When Donald reaches the end of the concourse, the media horde does not react or even seem to know who he is. By the time the rest of his traveling entourage catches up with him, the Japanese media are staring dumbfounded," the book states. When the press in attendance found out Jackson wasn't there, they reportedly left immediately without asking Trump a single question.
