Former Director of National Intelligence Says Trump is Mentally Unfit for Office

Former Director of National Intelligence Says Trump is Mentally Unfit for Office
(FreshAsFrankie) Donald Trump’s Phoenix campaign-style rally recently made waves, as he used his platform to address the media in a less-than-positive manner.
Along with that, Trump went on to say that “I strongly condemn neo-Nazis, white Supremacists and the KKK” in reference to the Charlottesville incidents. Trump caught much heat for his response to the rally that turned deadly, saying that “both sides” (meaning white supremacists and counter-protesters) were responsible for the issues. Essentially, Trump re-read his statements about Charlottesville but took out the “on many sides” bit. His rally found peace protesters outside of the venue he was at, but that eventually turned into police showing up with riot gear to disperse the crowd.

Since then, former director of National Intelligence James Clapper has delivered some choice words for Trump and his ability to run the country following his rally. While on CNN, Clapper said, “I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office, and I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it.” Trump addressed the United States’ strategy in Afghanistan during his rally, and Clapper was not impressed, saying “He should have quit while he was ahead after last night. Again, I think the real Trump came through.” If it wasn’t clear that Clapper does not support the president in any way, the question he posed to CNN’s Don Lemon sealed the deal. Clapper asked, “How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?”
