“Everyone left completely shaken, shell-shocked. He is not in control of himself. It is all yelling and screaming,” the Republican said.

It is “100%” worse, the Republican, who has been to many of these meetings, said. They are also worried about Trump’s “stability.”

Other senior Republicans were “shaken up,” and “sickened.”

Pentagon generals present during Wednesday’s fateful meeting were described as “very upset.”

“This goes beyond just a policy difference,” Gangel said. “They were concerned about his demeanor.”
