Fears about President Trump‘s mental fitness have burst into public view with the upcoming release of a new book detailing the chaotic early months of his presidency.
While the concerns are being voiced almost exclusively by Trump critics and media figures, public figures openly questioning whether the president is mentally unwell is virtually unprecedented.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday faced questions for the second consecutive day about Trump’s fitness to serve as commander in chief.
“It’s disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen,” Sanders said, calling Trump “an incredibly good and strong leader.”
But White House denials haven’t stopped the torrent of speculation on cable news about the president’s mental state, which is also being fueled by Trump’s tweet taunting North Korea’s leader over the size of his “nuclear button.”
