U.S. President Trump Mentally Ill ?

A recent letter to the editorial board of the New York Times, that was signed by 35 psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, put it this way: “We fear that too much is at stake to be silent.” It continued, “We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president."

But there is more behind it ! Read the original article.


In an open letter 35 U.S. psychiatrists said
that Trump is affected by mental disorder.


In [that] open letter, psychiatrists describe Trump as needing each [single] hour, each quarter of an hour "some opponent to be crushed under his foot" and moreover [being in an] "extremely unstable mood".

However, one high-profile psychiatrist is opposing his 35 colleagues who wrote to the editorial board of the New York Times:

美国一位知名精神病专家艾伦•弗朗西斯(Allen Frances)认为,很多人非精神病专家都混淆了特朗普的问题,直接把他定义为“自恋型人格障碍” (narcissistic personality disorder)。

One of America's best-known specialists on mental disorder, Allen Francis, considers that many non-psychiatrists are mixing up the Trump case, immediately defining it as narcissistic personality disorder.
