Is President Trump mentally competent to be president of the United States?

Screenshot from CNN's YouTube video: Analysis: Trump's behavior raises questions about competency

The political left, since the early days of President Trump’s campaign for the White House, has questioned the president’s competency for the job. Those questions were renewed in force with the president’s actions over the last week. He has retweeted anti-Muslim videos posted by Jayda Fransen, a deputy in the far right Britain First party. This caused outrage throughout the United Kingdom because it was seen as helping to legitimize a fringe party. At an event that honored Native American war heroes, he called Senator Warren “Pocahontas.” In addition, with tensions on the verge of boiling over and war with North Korea seemingly getting closer every day, the president, in a speech, called the North Korean leader “Little Rocket Man” and a “sick puppy.” Questions have also arisen regarding the president’s war with media outlets he doesn’t like, most notably CNN, and reports that he is privately claiming the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape was faked, despite him publicly apologizing for his comments more than a year ago.

The president does have some things going well for him. The economy is doing better than it has in years. Plus, he and the Republicans are close to passing a major tax overhaul in Congress, giving the president his first big legislative win. In addition, the president has long cultivated a reputation of unpredictability, and it was his unpredictable and unorthodox campaign style that helped win him the presidency. However, given his actions over the past several days, a question remains: Is President Trump competent to be president of the United States?

  1. President Trump incompetent???!!! He’s done more for this country in less time then any other president put together. cnn you’re incompetent!!!

  2. It is only a bunch of idiots saying these things. He should sue everyone who says this or any article who writes it. These Demos have to be somewhat off to have the stupid courage to talk about our president. They should be gathered up and jailed.

  3. just another ploy by the democrats . I voted for him and would vote for him again. The democrats simply cant except the fact THEY LOST !!! best President we have had in a long time.

  5. Trump is DEFINITELY a good president. He is honest….nothing hideous about him. True born american and doesn’t have to live behind one lie after another. True statement: The truth hurts. Trump you have all the support you need. Keep keeping on !

  6. I did not know he had any mind of his own. Doesn’t his mind belong to his non-existent deity? He was not qualified to be elected by smart voters. He has never made a decision worthy of a qualified President. And most surely he is not qualified to remain in the white house. He should resign, or be impeached immediately.

  7. President Trump is MORE than “competent”…..he’s the best thing to happen to the USA in many years! May God bless & protect him & his family! ❤️??
