On Wednesday, in an interview with Politico, Yale psychiatry professor Bandy X. Lee disclosed recent meetings with lawmakers in regard to Trump’s mental health. Lee met with a Republican and several Democrats to convey worries she had about Trump’s actions.
Lee told Politico that she believes Trump is “unraveling” and “falling apart under the stress.”
He is “going back to conspiracy theories, denying things he has admitted before, his being drawn to violent videos,” said Lee.
“Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency,” she added, and warning lawmakers: “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”
During the meetings with lawmakers, Lee explained that Trump’s mental health seemed to be of high importance.
“One senator said that it was the meeting he most looked forward to in 11 years. Their level of concern about the president’s dangerousness was surprisingly high,” Lee told Politico.
This isn’t the first time concerns have been raised over the President’s mental health. Back in November, members of the White House staff were reportedly raising concerns over Trump’s capacity to make the right decisions.
Chief White House reporter for the New York Times, Maggie Haberman, also raised the issue.

“Something is unleashed with him lately,” Haberman said. “I don’t know what is causing it. I don’t know how to describe it.”
California Congresswoman Jackie Spier has been working with a group of mental health professionals to oust Trump via the 25th Amendment. The 25th Amendment covers presidential succession and removing a commander in chief due to health concerns.
