President Donald Trump's combative "communications style" gets in the way of a leader who "actually does care," author and self-help guru Tony Robbins says.

In an interview with Business Insider, Robbins said "I gave him his first big speech."

"We had 10,000 people and he was floored and he was scared," he said of the speech in the mid-1990s. "And then he got addicted to it. But his talk was 'get a prenup,' like, breakthrough insights. But because of the TV show he had, he had such a following of people and people wanted to hear what he had to say."

Robbins told Business Insider, "we've never shared values, he and I."

"But I respected his ability to turn it around," he continued. "I remember the banks couldn't afford to have him go under and he was able to turn it around and the market turned around, all those things turned around.

"So I respect somebody who can turn things around and be successful."

His "communication style" is another matter, Robbins said.

"I think the president's communication style is the most difficult thing because he actually does care, people who know him know he cares," he told Business Insider.

"If you see his kids, and you get to know his kids, you can see there is a good man in there. But his style of communication, his combative approach, the elements of ego that are obviously there in all of us but seem to be more easy to see in the president sometimes than other people, get in the way of his capacity to lead, unfortunately."

In Robbins' 1991 book, "Awaken the Giant Within," he uses Trump as a case study to illustrate what should not drive your life, if happiness and fulfillment are your goals, Business Insider reported.

"In interviews he has revealed that his ultimate pain in life is being second-best at anything — he equates it with failure,"Robbins wrote in the book, BI noted. "In fact, his greatest drive to achieve comes from his compulsion to avoid this pain."
