    • Abstract:
      The Chapter I contributed to the book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, called "Trump's Daddy Issues—A Toxic Mix for America," compared my relationship with my powerful father to Trump's relationship with his and how it has effected our identity formation and behavior. The piece also exposed the difficulties I have had dealing with my Orthodox Jewish father's support of Donald Trump's presidency and the continued impact it has had on our already strained relationship. I offer how my father and I navigate the murky waters through which most fathers and sons, including the Trumps, must travel in the quest for each individual's striving for identity. Just as there is a price to pay in my family as my father and I work through our unique issues, so too do the effects of the toxic relationship between Donald and his father. The difference is that with the Trumps, there is the risk of a much larger toll on innocent bystanders. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
