Republican Strategist Says Trump Is Showing Signs Of Mental Illness

One Republican strategist has claimed that people close to President Donald Trump believe he is showing signs of mental illness. Particularly, Trump is exhibiting “signs of paranoia and delusion.”  This is especially apparent in the president’s refusal to take back his wiretap claims despite evidence presented to the contrary by the FBI recently.

In recent weeks, Trump has been adamant that the Obama administration wiretapped him during his campaign for the 2016 presidential elections. He chose to declare his accusations over a series of tweets, claiming that former President Barack Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower.

Recently, FBI Director James Comey delivered the results of their investigation into the matter. He proclaimed, “With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets.”

According to Republican strategist Nicole Wallace, the president still believes that a wiretapping indeed happened. Wallace said that another person who recently spent time with Trump pointed out “sights of paranoia and delusion around the idea that he’s so right.”

Despite Comey’s conclusion, it seems Trump has refused to accept the lack of evidence. At a White House briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer remarked, “There’s a lot more questions than answers that need to get asked.”  Trump also tweeted, “The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!”

33 psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers question Trump’s sanity.

Previously, 33 psychiatrists, social workers and psychologists claimed that Trump is “incapable of serving safely as president.” According to a letter they sent to The New York Times, Trump displays “grave emotional instability.” He has also shown an “inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions.” Individuals like Trump reportedly “distort reality to suit their psychological state.”

Three professors also questioned Trump’s “apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality.” A previous story in Huffington Post had also explored the possibility that Trump may be suffering from a clinical case of “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Today, despite presented evidence, Trump also says that any story regarding his officials’ ties with Russia is fake. “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign,” Trump recently tweeted. Indeed, the president may be far from reality on this one.
