On Tuesday, The New York Times published a piece titled "What Drives Donald Trump? Fear of Losing Status, Tapes Show."

The tapes referenced there were recorded interviews the Republican nominee gave in 2014 to a reporter working on a biography titled "The Truth about Trump."

The Times noted that these recordings reveal a man who is "fixated on his own celebrity, anxious about losing his status and contemptuous of those who fall from grace."

Alex Cohen spoke with Donna Rockwell about what drives a craving to be in the limelight. Rockwell is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in celebrity mental health.
