He really said that? He really has no idea what is about to come out of his mouth every time it opens.
I think it may be the truth inadvertently slipping out though, as suggested above: he's always had enough money that it's not about making more - I think for him ego is the driver, not cash.
I'd say both. It seems a common driver with wealthy people that they need to make more and more money. And, of course, if you have enough money to start with it tends (unless you are Trump) to be relatively easy to make more.
Remember - he is eye-wateringly insecure so he will always want to be making more money than some perceived rival (who probably couldn't care less about their relative wealth). And the fact that he loses money must also rankle badly. I think he cares more about making money than anything else apart from his awareness that everybody thinks he is useless. Becoming president must have made that very clear to him in ways that didn't apply before.
