Democratic Congressman, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California), reportedly plans to file a bill as soon as next week that would require the White House to have an in-house psychiatrist. Something he says is overdue but also urgent given his and other people’s concerns about number 45’s mental health.
In his statement he says: ““I’m looking at it from the perspective of, if there are questions about the mental health of the president of the United States, what may be the best way to get the president treatment?”
During his interview with the Huffington Post, the lawmaker said that “it is not normal" for the president to tweet about all of these topics within 24 hours. He also maintained that Trump is divorced from the facts of reality.
“His disconnection from the truth is incredibly disturbing. ... When you add on top of that his stifling of dissent, his attacks on the free press and his attacks on the legitimacy of the judiciary, that then takes us down the road toward authoritarianism. That’s why I’ve concluded he is a danger to the republic,” Lieu contends.
