I have read the story, and the narcissist is a part of the story, just like he is in your comment.
He is the reason some people abandon both their cities and nation. He could not handle the pandemic. He is the reason for the riots. He is the reason for everything that went wrong in US the last 4 years. He think the world asked for him to be their leader. He withdraw US from WHO, the UN Climate Protocol Agreement and more. He treats people. He treats nations. He kills people. He bombs nations.
Of about the 330 million citizens living in US in 2016 only 61 million of these voted for him, and 63 million voted for Hillary. He did not win the election, he stole it.
The US nation had a lot of problems before he came to the Withe House. Now US have tons of problems thanks to this narcissist, because he has amplified all problems.
As a man I can see all his mistakes — and I was shocked back in 2016 — because I thought what you call Americans could see he was no leader for your nation.
And I will never be able to understand how a woman can live by the side of such a man or accept his behavior.
And I understand why people abandon the violence and crime in the cities. And maybe there is a reason why it happens, and someone make a benefit out of it.
