President Donald Trump’s deteriorating mental state is worrying White House aides, Business Insider reported Friday.
“President Donald Trump's aides and confidants are growing more and more concerned about his mental state after days of erratic behavior, wild outbursts, and bizarre fixations,” Business Insider reported.
Trump has spent all week repeating his lie that Hurricane Dorian threatened Alabama. Despite his own government fact-checking his lie within 20 minutes of him first tweeting it on Sunday morning, Trump dragged the scandal its sixth day on Friday.
"No one knows what to expect from him anymore," one former White House official told Business Insider.
"His mood changes from one minute to the next based on some headline or tweet, and the next thing you know his entire schedule gets tossed out the window because he's losing his sh*t,” the former official explained.
"People are used to the president saying things that aren't true, but this Alabama stuff is another story," the former official noted. "This was the president sending out patently false information about a national-emergency situation as it was unfolding."
A Republican strategist in frequent contact with the White House is also worried.
"He's deteriorating in plain sight," the GOP strategist warned.
At the Toronto Global Forum, former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci also worried about Trump’s fitness for office.
"I think the president is in severe mental decline, and I'm not saying that now because I'm a political adversary or I disavowed him, I'm saying that objectively just looking at what's going on," Scaramucci said.
