“It’s very important to end the wild speculation — the wild, unfounded speculation,” Dr. Allen Frances, professor emeritus of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical College, told the Herald.
“We can’t protect the American democracy by attacking Trump on psychological grounds,” Frances said.
“Most amateur diagnosticians have mislabeled President Trump with the diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder,” Frances said in his letter. “I wrote the criteria that define this disorder, and Mr. Trump doesn’t meet them.”
The president “does not suffer from the distress and impairment required to diagnose mental disorder,” Frances wrote in his letter.
