US President Donald Trump has capitulated to the “deep state” and is no longer in charge of his country, despite promising to oppose the ruling establishment during his election campaign, says American academic Guy McPherson. reports citing AFP.

“The deep state, the people who really pull the strings of empire in the United States and beyond have fully taken control of the Trump administration,” McPherson, a social critic and a professor at the University of Arizona, told Press TV on Sunday.

He made the remarks while discussing Trump’s criticism of the explosive book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which raises questions about the president’s mental fitness to run the White House.

Speaking at the presidential retreat at Camp David on Saturday, Trump said slammed the “very weak” libel laws in the US as the real reason Paul Wolff, the book’s author, was able to write his “work of fiction.”

"If they were stronger, hopefully, you would not have something like that happen where you can say whatever comes into your head,” the president said.

McPherson said while he agreed with Trump’s stance on libel laws, it was clear that Trump was not a “clear thinker” either.
“He has sometimes spoken out of turn or beyond where the evidence should take him,” he explained.

“I’m not sure that Donald Trump is in a position to be telling people what is accurate and what is not, given his own at many times questionable mental state,” the analyst concluded.

Wolff’s book has caused a storm of controversy and has left Trump facing questions about his mental stability, with quotes from former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

It also paints a chaotic and dysfunctional picture of Trump’s election campaign and early months of his presidency.

Trump launched a defence of his fitness for office in a series of tweets, suggesting that his opponents had often raised doubts about his mental state to discredit his presidency.

Dismissing Wolff’s claims, the president has branded himself as a “very stable genius” whose two greatest assets were his “mental stability and being, like, really smart.”
