Top Professors Express 'Grave Concerns' About Trump's Mental Stability

Three leading professors of psychiatry from America's prestigious universities have written to president Barack Obama, expressing their "grave concern" over his successor Donald Trump's mental stability

In the letter addressed to the US president, the doctors have urged him to order a "full medical and neuropsychiatric evaluation" before the president-elect takes offi ce on January 20. The distinguished professors are Judith Herman, professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Nanette Gartrell, associate clinical professor of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco (1988-2011,) and assistant professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School (1983-87); and Dee Mosbacher, Ph.D. assistant clinical professor Department of Community Health Systems University of California, San Francisco (2005-2013). In June, Atlantic published a psychologist's fi ndings that Trump suffered from "narcissism, disagreeableness, grandiosity". In August, an Oxford study claimed that Trump has more psychopathic traits than Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Trump outstripped Hitler on factors including social infl uence and fearlessness, while the Nazi dictator scored higher on cold-heartedness and Machiavellian egocentricity.
