No, Trump’s not delusional — it’s actually much worse than that 

Trump’s “delusion” is simply a conspiracy theory that he thinks has gained the most traction with his millions of supporters. His “delusion” is purposeful and intentional: The election was stolen from him; he will be reinstated as president in August (or at some other time); he could run for speaker of the House in order to impeach President Biden; he is likely to run for president again in 2024. He holds onto his “delusion” because it has successfully kept him the cult leader of the aggrieved and the victimized. His “delusion” has made him the pied piper of the Republican Party.
