We never see or hear Mr. Trump laughing. It’s interesting that he doesn’t laugh because scientists tell us that laughing is a highly sophisticated social signaling system that helps us to bond and negotiate, and Trump takes great pride in his negotiation skills.
This isn’t actually an etiquette question, but more of a comment about social skills. Why doesn’t Trump ever laugh?

G.H., you’re so right, Mr. Trump doesn’t seem to laugh. We see him angry, smirking, smiling, but never laughing.
Laughter has huge health benefits. Laughing is a great stress reliever, lowers anxiety, releases tension, boosts the immune system, and stimulates our circulation and conversation.
Not being a scientist, my guess is that control freaks don’t laugh. Mr. Trump would feel out of control should he find himself bursting into laughter.
Laughter sets you free.
