A psychiatrist dives into Trump's mental state — leaving more questions about the society ...
- Several months ago I wrote a piece asking whether impeachment is in the future for U.S President Donald Trump. I began by comparing his behaviour to someone with a narcissistic personality disorder: fragile self-esteem, inflated sense of self, deep need for admiration and lack of empathy for others.
I was criticized by several Canadian Trump supporters. They complained I didn’t have the medical qualifications to make such a finding. One asked pointedly, “Who the hell are you to analyse Donald Trump?”
So I’ve found someone who has the qualifications to assess Trump’s mental state. He is one of more than 40,000 U.S. mental health professionals who have signed an online petition saying Trump “manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of president of the United States.”
Dr. Justin Frank practises psychoanalysis and is a clinical professor of psychiatry at George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. He has written two bestselling books, Bush on the Couch and Obama on the Couch. Both delve inside the minds of presidents using applied psychology.
