Is Trump's bad behavior due to a personality disorder?

I find it quite humorous to read about Donald Trump supporters who keep hoping that he will change his behavior in order to appear more "presidential."

Yet by searching the web for the symptoms of antisocial personality disorder, one finds a perfect description of Mr. Trump's behavior in this year's presidential campaign. In fact, he shows 13 of the 15 symptoms listed on the Mayo Clinic website.

People with this disorder are extremely difficult to treat, yet they are unable to change without treatment. Those who deal with antisocial personalities are advised to take precautions to protect themselves from being harmed by them, and the American electorate would be wise to heed that advice as well.
