Trump has always had a simple MO, take credit for anything that can be perceived to be good and find others to blame when his plans fall apart. So of course he has no need for briefings or policy papers or detailed thinking. He just goes with the flow and edits the credit as required. No need for hard work or heavy thinking, right Donald.
