Does Trump have Dementia?

Donald Trump has “lost it”, says author Michael Wolff.

Donald Trump will be­come the first US Pres­i­dent in al­most two decades to at­tend the an­nual gath­er­ing of the world’s su­per-rich elite in Davos. The surprise move has raised eye­brows, as his Amer­ica First agenda sits awkwardly with those who use the sum­mit to pro­mote unfettered global mar­kets.

Mr Trump will take cen­tre stage at the World eco­nomic Fo­rum in the Swiss ski resort this month, where he will take the op­por­tu­nity to ruf­fle the feath­ers of bankers, busi­ness lead­ers and bil­lion­aires.

The event is seen as the most elite gath­er­ing on the planet, where busi­ness lead­ers at­tempt to tackle is­sues such as inequality and globalisation, while staying in the world’s most pres­ti­gious ho­tels and at­tend­ing ex­trav­a­gant parties. It is thought Mr Trump will preach about his Amer­ica First agenda, which crit­ics see as protectionist

The US leader will be the first to at­tend since Bill Clin­ton in 2000, and only the second in his­tory. But he is not guar­an­teed to have a warm reception as he has an un­easy re­la­tion­ship with the world’s mega-rich, who like to see them­selves as liberals and al­most all backed his ri­val Hil­lary Clin­ton in the 2016 elec­tion.

Th­ese big names of busi­ness and fi­nance are sure to give him a frostier welcome than last year’s star per­former, China’s Com­mu­nist leader Xi Jinping, whose praise of globalization was cheered to the rafters. Mr Clin­ton’s speech 18 years ago was used to mount a staunch defence of free trade, but Mr Trump’s mes­sage is likely to be far more con­tro­ver­sial. Many of the at­ten­dees are fierce op­po­nents of his efforts to drag jobs and busi­nesses back to Amer­ica and away from cheaper countries in the de­vel­op­ing world.

White House press sec­re­tary Sarah San­ders last night said Mr Trump is ex­cited about the trip, only his fifth for­eign trip as Pres­i­dent. His arrival will cause a security headache as scores of aides, snipers and body­guards de­scend to keep him safe.

It came as Mr Trump faced fresh ques­tions over his men­tal ca­pac­ity after he appeared to for­get the words to the US na­tional an­them.

He fum­bled his way through the Star Spangled Banner and seemed to mouth gibberish while at­tend­ing an Amer­i­can football game in Atlanta. As the mu­sic played, he put his hand on his chest and started off well by singing the open­ing words cor­rectly. But soon after he appeared to be mouthing non­sense. Crit­ics wrote on Twit­ter that he had a “mouth agape, thou­sand-yard stare” and questioned his patriotism.

Jeremy New­berger wrote: “Which is worse, Trump doesn’t know the words to the Na­tional An­them or Trump has dementia and can’t remember the words to the National An­them?”

The state of his mind has been openly ques­tioned following the pub­li­ca­tion last week of a bomb­shell book that claims the 71-year-old fre­quently re­peats him­self and can­not even read.

DONALD TRUMP (in his own words) :
“They say, ‘Is Donald Trump an intellectual?’
Trust me, I’m like a smart person.”
