Here are 6 recent incidents that show how Donald Trump is deteriorating mentally: report

Published

The Washington Monthly has listed six major indicators that President Donald Trump is deteriorating mentally — and they’ve all happened within the last week.

Their first example was the epic press conference the day following the Midterm election last week. It was obvious he was depressed and was very confrontational. The first two signs of Alzheimer’s Disease, which Trump’s father suffered from, is depression and irritability.

Trump canceled his plans for a Washington, DC military parade so that he could go to Paris on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended WWI. Instead of attending the parade he anticipated, he cut out instead.

“The White House suggested that it was because of the weather, but that didn’t stop other world leaders or Trump’s staff from attending the event,” The Washington Monthly wrote.

Trump was two hours late to a dinner that evening he was supposed to have with world leaders. There was no reason given and presumably, a staffer had informed him about the dinner.

Trump was also scheduled to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (SEAN) and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summits in the coming weeks but those trips have now been canceled.

Not long after that announcement, the White House confirmed the president wouldn’t go to Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day because of the rain.

The White House hasn’t released the president’s schedule for next week, but after the president fought to go to Pittsburgh after the shooting, there hasn’t been a word out of the West Wing about going to Thousand Oaks. Trump hasn’t visited California in the past when they’ve had fires that put people in shelters, so it’s unclear if he’s interested in doing so here.

It’s unclear what’s happening, but a pattern is emerging. After spending the final days of the election racing all over the country to campaign for Republicans, the 72-year-old president could very easily be exhausted, overwhelmed and in need of some executive time. However, more seems to be at play here.

The Monthly wondered if Trump was depressed or decompensating, a term used for a person’s “functional deterioration.”

“Decompensation may occur due to fatigue, stress, illness, or old age. When a system is ‘compensated,’ it is able to function despite stressors or defects. Decompensation describes an inability to compensate for these deficiencies,” one explanation outlined.

Trump is still scheduled to attend the G20 meeting in Argentina after Thanksgiving.

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta reported on Friday that White House aides are unhappy with Ambassador Gordon Sondland for holding up a call with Trump in a restaurant for multiple witnesses to listen.

The details were revealed in bombshell closed-door testimony before Congress on Friday.

Acosta noted the administration was trying to downplay the significance of the call.

"But I will tell you, that the aides of the president are not happy that Gordon Sondland apparently held the phone up so other aides could hear what was going on and the words of the source familiar with the conversations inside the White House, the president speaks loudly, Sondland should know that," Acosta reported.

""Sondland told Trump that (Ukrainian President Volodymyr) Zelensky 'loves your ass,'" Holmes testified. "I then heard President Trump ask, 'So, he's gonna do the investigation?' Ambassador Sondland replied that 'he's gonna do it,' adding that President Zelensky will do 'anything you ask him to.'"
