Donald Trump Is 'the Most Dangerous Man in the World' : American Psychiatrists and Academics

The Independent

Donald Trump is “dangerously mentally ill”, a group of experts and commentators has claimed, The Independent reports.

Led by Yale psychiatrist Dr Bandy Lee, 27 writers hold forth in a new book that also claims “his madness is catching”.

The Trump presidency, the authors assert, “has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond”.

But not all of the 27 are psychiatric or psychological professionals; the roster includes linguist and media analyst Noam Chomsky, and journalist Gail Sheehy.

The book appears to defy American psychiatry’s professional body, which says doctors commenting on the behaviour or alleged symptoms of a public figure violates a “fundamental principle” of consent.

Dr Lance Dodes, a psychiatrist formerly of Harvard University, said Mr Trump exhibited “sociopathic qualities” and “a persistent loss of reality”.
