Concerns over Donald Trump’s mental status are taking hold in Washington and the media after the latest report that he leaked classified information to Russian officials.

Axar.az reports citing Independent.

Reporters and television news programme pundits have been diving into comments from sources close to the president that speak to his mental health and mood in a way that has not been done with other presidents. However, the recent news about Mr Trump is also somewhat unprecedented.

The Washington Post recently reported that Mr Trump revealed “highly classified” information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak during a meeting in the Oval Office.
The meeting took place just one day after Mr Trump unceremoniously fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into alleged ties between Russia and Mr Trump’s campaign team.

Also, the New York Times reported that Mr Trump asked Mr Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s alleged Russia ties, adding that Mr Flynn “he’s a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe programme, co-host Joe Scarborough commented that “People on the inside say he keeps getting worse — and mentally, keeps getting worse.”

In another report, the Washington Post said their sources called into question Mr Trump’s “state of mind.”

Carl Bernstein, the legendary journalist who uncovered the Watergate scandal and corruption within the Nixon presidency, argued that reporting on Mr Trump’s mental fitness is valid.

“We have many reporters, myself included, who have talked to numerous people, Republicans on Capitol Hill, who in private will tell you they doubt the stability of this president,” he said.
