|Mental Health Professionals Declare Trump is Mentally Ill And Must Be Removed||Why Mental Health Is A Poor Measure Of A President|
|“We, the undersigned mental health professionals (please state your degree), believe in our professional judgment that Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States. And we respectfully request he be removed from office, according to article 4 of the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which states that the president will be replaced if he is ‘unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.’”||“As for Trump, ‘he is obviously impulsive and has a personality style different than most presidents,’ Swartz says. But suggestions that a psychiatric disorder has made him incompetent or unfit have come primarily from ‘people who disapprove of his behavior,’ he says.
‘I don’t think any of the diagnostic labels do justice to what we’re seeing,’ author Shenk says. ‘The very attributes that are most troubling to so many people are precisely what excite so much affection and loyalty in so many others.’”
Over 69,000 mental health professionals have signed a petition stating that Trump is mentally unfit for office, while others are unsure that “mental fitness” is valid as a determining factor of competency under the 25th Amendment. What do you think?
