...seeing as there's been so much talk about Trump today, I would like to ask - do you think he might have mental health issue?

Hear me out.

He was being interviewed on Fox TV a couple of weeks ago. He was asked, themhost Ainsley Earhard:

//This Sunday is Mother's Day. What are your plans? What are you gonna do for Melania and do you have a message for all the moms that are watching this morning?//

He responded:

//Well, we'll be together. I'm going to a Camp David meeting — a big meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Camp David is this very special place that nobody ever gets to see but it's a great work environment. And we're going to have meetings on different things.
And we're going to have meetings on different things, and our military has never looked better. It's never been better. We've never had the kind of equipment that we have now.
And we had planes that were 50 years old, and more. Fighter jets — now we have the best in the world, the F-35 and the F-18, and you know, what we have is incredible.
The equipment and the people we have are great, but you know, they have to have equipment.//

//And we spent $1.5 trillion — really, more than that. And we've totally rebuilt our military, which you have to do. You know, I'm a very budget-conscious person. But you have to do.
The nice thing is — it's all built in the USA. And plenty of equipment coming. Lot of this equipment is coming. So it's very important that we have the best military and we have the... our military has never been in condition like it is now and soon will be."//

Whatever you think of Trump - had this been a relative of yours, wouldn't you be concerned?

Anyone who wants accuse me of bashing Trump - you're right, but I 100% think that this is completely bash-able. If you think this is a valid response to such a question...

...why?

The guy is a total fruitcake
What happened to his advisers?
He fired them.
Pretty much sums it up then.
You left half of it out, SP. At the same interview he also said this, which is a valid response to such a question.

"Well all I can say is happy Mother's Day, and I had a great mom," Trump said. "I loved my mom and she loved me, which isn't hard — which is, I must tell you, probably not easy to do. But she was so good to me. She was so good.

"I couldn't do any wrong, which is a big problem. Maybe that's why I ended up the way I ended up, I don't know. I couldn't do any wrong in her eyes. And I had a great father too. Great guy. Very different types. But my mother was a terrific woman. And Melania's been a great mother to Barron, I will tell you that. Barron is growing up really beautifully. And she's been a great mother to Barron."
sp - If you have a look here -

you will see that you are far from the only one seriously questioning the mental health and capacity of the President.

Wait until you see the debates between Trump and Biden.
As you seem to worry about Trump almost constantly...you will not sleep at night worrying about whoever wins.

It is a valid response - but in the same was as sp's quote should not be taken in isolation, yours should not either.

The fact that both form the same answer raises serious questions.

Thank you naomi24 - you've pointed out that I've not copied his whole interview.

You're right.

But that's not the case. At the end of the interview, Trump was given what is called a 'low ball' question. It's an easy question which ties up an interview with a friendly media source.

That was his answer.

What you've copied is irrelevant.

Even F-35 pilots could say something about mother's day without mentioning F-35s.
President Trump is the chief of American Armed Forces hence the salute he returns to his US Marine BG. He is obviously very proud of their equipment and capabilities so I suppose he was just expounding that any aggressors would receive one 'mother' of a response on the day.
he's not a very good orator...speaks from the hip? is he mentally ill
doubt it, head of a big empire..so iv read, although he had a hand up
still..he cannot be that stupid.



He needed prompting but he actually goes on at length about his mother (and father)
AH, //but in the same was as sp's quote should not be taken in isolation, yours should not either. //

There was a danger that SP's quote would be taken in isolation - which clearly it had been - until I provided the rest. You now have the whole.
Listen from 46 mins on...if you can be bothered.

The great thing about the AnswerBank is that you can click on your name and see your history.

I've responded to four threads about Trump in 2020.

Today is the first question I've asked about him this year.

It's June.

Can you explain your comment "As you seem to worry about Trump almost constantly"?

How have you come to this conclusion?

And what do you think about his response to the easy question? Do think it was strange?

If Jeremy Corbyn had given the same answer what would have gone through your mind?
SP, //What you've copied is irrelevant. //

Inconvenient to you perhaps, but certainly not irrelevant. He might have been talking the US up, as is his wont - and even himself, as is his wont - but contrary to the impression your OP gives, he answered the question.

Are you saying that when someone is interviewed, you should take the interview as a whole?

I would understand if I'd cut bits out of the answer - but this is a complete answer.

Do you think a question "What are you doing for mother's day?" should elicit a response what encompasses America's military might?
That moved me to hear what he said about his parents.
