UNITED STATES – Trump calls himself a ‘stable genius’

US President Donald Trump has rejected questions raised over his mental health in a bombshell book, describing himself as a “very stable genius”.

Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House suggests even those close to Trump have questioned his capability.

The US president has dismissed the book, calling Wolff a “loser”.

The row has overshadowed a key meeting of Republicans as they try to thrash out their priorities for 2018.

A retreat at Camp David will focus heavily on a strategy before crucial congressional elections in November.

Trump is among those attending, but on Saturday the fallout from the book was again his focus, with the president accusing Democrats and the “fake news” media of “screaming mental stability and intelligence”.

Fire and Fury went on sale early on Friday, days ahead of its scheduled release, amid the president lawyers’ attempts to block its publication. It has become an instant bestseller.

The book describes a Trump team shocked by their own win on election night, White House staffers saying Mr Trump’s “mental powers were slipping”, and senior administration officials calling Mr Trump an “idiot”.

It has also sparked a public rift between Mr Trump and his former aide Steve Bannon, who is quoted as accusing Mr Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr of “treasonous” behaviour in meeting a group of Russians.

Bannon and the author have both been the target of the president’s ire over the past few days – the former cried when he lost his job last year, Mr Trump said; the latter had written a book “full of lies”, he added.

On Friday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CNN that he had “no reason to question” Trump’s mental fitness.

    Trump is a political genius, he proved that by beating 14 experienced republican pros for the nomination and then beating a woman who was guaranteed to win by the mainstream press. So now in total exasperation the left and the press are calling him mad, its clear they have nothing else left. Go Donald go lol.

      He did not expect to win, I said that he was in it for free Trump brand exposure all along, and recent exposure of his team play and family reaction has revealed that is the case.

      And he DID NOT win the popular vote, their twisted electoral process swindled the real winner, let us always remember that.

    I can only assume that you are being ironic, otherwise you are very naive. The fact that Trump won the Presidential election had little to do with his mental capacity or intellect. The man is a reality TV star. Yes “is”. He is inarticulate , in the range of an average 8yr old. His winning the election has more to do with an uniquely complicated electoral system that was expertly manipulated by those who had vested interest in having a buffoon as President.
    The electoral system backfired and a dangerous ill equipped ñeanderthàl has his finger on the button that can destroy us all.
    You see? All you need is popular TV and a dumb electorate. Sanity and intelligence are discretionary.

    If the fake news would give the man a chance and stop having him on the defensive all the time, then maby he would not have to state the obvious, that hes been a billionaire success all his life. Even cnn anchors that dislike trump called the book slanderous and poor. Read real news.

    He does have pre dementia. He failed to even recognise people he knew when at maralago over the holidays. He is obsess with hinself that is why he insults others hoping to make himself look good. If Obama discovered a cure for cancer he would declare it fake null and void. BTW he is not as rich as u think and that is why he is so afraid that the truth will come out. He is as crazy as a fox.

    Hey folks…look on da bright side: the folks we REALLY worry about, like that li’l fat guy in D.P.R.K…..Putin, China’s Big Man…plus a cupple dozen uthuh psychotic “leaders” in Africa, Syria, Venezuela, etc… might just hysterically laugh themselves into a stroke….and fade away. That would just leave one padded-ward candidate for the Congress to deal with, and impeachment is rapidly becoming an always an option…even without Mueller actually dropping any charges. If some top U.S. politicians are beginning to publicly leak their fears…guess what they are saying to each other privately!

    I never thought there were so many ignorant, warped, and plain stoopid folks in the U.S.A., that cud believe all the populist crap this man put on their plates to just lap it up. Well…as the Big Guy sez….”Let’s see what happens”!!

    I ave worked in psychiatry for nealy fifty years and I have never met or seen anyone filled with their own vainglory as Donald Trump. The man is a psychopath and cares for no one but himself. He is a megalomaniac with a passion for grandiose things, and that makes him very dangerous indeed. The people in the USA may yet regret that they made him president.
