Former President Ronald Reagan’s son, Ron Reagan, questioned President Trump’s fitness for office on Wednesday.
“Donald Trump is a deeply damaged human being,” Reagan said on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews.”
Reagan also called Trump a “sociopathic, malignant narcissist.”
“[T]he electoral college has sort of vomited this thing up and it landed in the Oval Office. And it needs to be removed. It’s a stain. It’s a big glob on the carpet there. It needs to be removed. And that means impeachment or the 25th Amendment. This man is a danger to the world,” he continued.
Reagan has repeatedly questioned Trump’s mental stability, telling Matthews in August that Trump is acting “pathological in his behavior.”
The Hill added:
His remarks come shortly after former President Jimmy Carter defended the Republican president for facing a harsher media environment than his predecessors, pointing to the press questioning his mental stability as a sign they are going too far in scrutinizing him.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday.
“I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation,” Carter continued.
