All quoted from Trump’s Cabinet, With a Prod, Extols the ‘Blessing’ of Serving Him.  (The New York Times, 6/12/2017)
Seeking constant admiration, praise and approval is a symptom of a narcissistic personality.   So it went on Monday in the Cabinet Room of the White House, as Mr. Trump transformed a routine meeting of senior members of his government into a mood-boosting, ego-stroking display of support for himself and his agenda. While the president never explicitly asked to be praised, Mr. Pence set the worshipful tone, and Mr. Trump made it clear he liked what he heard.
