The Russians have led Trump to believe that he is a key player, a central figure, in their government sponsored network of international criminals.
His primary, if not sole, purpose now is to create diversion and distraction sufficient to draw attention away from the nefarious plots and schemes that revolve around the vast sums of money that Vladimir Putin and his coconspirators are stealing from the Russian prople.
The tactic is to cause a destabilization of the American government and political process which can provide cover for the criminal endeavors he thinks he's an integral part of.
Would Trump start a war or escalate an incident with North Korea to further the aims of a foreign power and in an effort to hide his complicity in it?
Would he go so far as to destroy the country in an effort to save himself?
Is he truly dimented or is he trying to create layers of cover-up?
