Letter: Trump may produce psychological testing
We can probably assume that in the future a movie will arise titled "The Trump Years." It might even be classified as a borderline horror film, because most women might find it hard to pay money to watch a film where babies and children are literally seized and taken away from their parents, not to be returned until who knows when. But hopefully we will learn something from what has happened to our country since 2016.
Tony Schwartz, who was the ghost writer for Trump's book "The Art of the Deal" wrote in the New Yorker in 2016.... that trying to interview Trump was one of the worst experiences of his life. Schwartz said he had to write the whole book himself, and apologized for being forced to write somewhat grandiose passages that made Trump look good. "Trump has no attention span, is fidgety like a five-year old that can't sit still, and has an alarming lack of concentration. He also can't remember any of the years of his childhood."
George Sachs, psychologist, wrote that Trump has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), which creates imbalances in chemical messages that affect the brain. "Never sticks to talking points, needs excitement whether good or bad. Overpromises, has a racing mind, won't look at you when you talk, craves adrenaline highs, and doesn't care about you. Sachs said, "Trump should have an ADHD specialist at his side at all times."
The Donald Trump years may force this nation to insist upon medical and psychological testing of the Democrat and Republican who wins in the primaries, because now we are in perilous times because we didn't.
