I call it pride.

Still don't see any evidence of greed, or at least not an outsized amount of greed.

People that think they are amazing want power because they believe they are better decision makers. I recognize this trait in myself and can identify with some aspects of the Trump/Musk personality, which is why I avoid positions of power/authority. I have a low tolerance for weak thinkers that amass into loud obnoxious groups. Someone more level-headed needs to run things because I'm right with Musk on telling the SEC to shove off. Nobody tells me what I can and cannot Tweet, and anyone making financial decisions based on Tweets deserves any outcome they receive.
