In a sense he wants what Kim Jung Un has -- total control over all facets of the media and public discourse. He is mentally sick and getting more desperate every day, but his Republican enablers are even more despicable for indulging him.
And trump will never get that level of control. However, like a screaming 3yr old child that is out of control at birthday party, he may get just enough to calm him down (temporarily). Pick any issue, such as Mueller Investigation. Trump wants a Saturday night massacre. Trump is screaming via tweet storms that Sessons, Rosinstien, and the entire Mueller team be fired on a single day, then have Meuller arrested\invested for treason. We know that scenario will never be allowed to happen, but to appease trump and get him to declare victory, a worn down congress might settle for half of that. Its no different than when a screaming 3yr old demands the he gets everything, but stops screaming and shitting on floor when he gets half of what he wants. Everyone is so relieved that the the non-stop screaming and shitting has come to an end. Meanwhile the 3yr old remained in control of the situation the entire time. After a few minutes of calm, the screaming and shitting starts all over again, and the cycle continues because he wants the other half he did not get.
... And so it is Trump; he is always fixated on what he wants and does not have. He won't settle of 80% power, or even 95% power. He will always be obsessed getting whatever he does not have, no matter how small or trivial. Anything less than 100% becomes an obsession\frustration.
