Whether or not Donald Trump is mentally fit enough for the demands of the White House has been a major concern even during his presidential campaign. Suspicions that Trump may have a mental illness have only increased after watching his disastrous presidency unfold – but recent footage has just emerged that paints Trump’s mental capacity in a new light, one that is far more disturbing.
In a recent video clip, a glassy-eyed Trump was captured wandering away from a meeting for seemingly no reason at all, looking completely lost and out of it. Trump had been meeting with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu when he suddenly left Netanyahu’s side, leaving the Prime Minister and all surrounding staff shocked and confused.
In the clip, you can hear Trump’s staff freaking out as they try to stop him and bring him back. As PoliticusUSA accurately reported, “The President Of The United States looks like the lights are on, but no one is home.”
The far-away look in Trump’s eyes is unsettling, to say the least. While most of us like nothing more than to poke fun at Trump and his foolishness, this clip actually looks like there is clearly something wrong with Trump’s health and he needs professional attention. Is he perhaps suffering from a mental break? Or could it be exhaustion? Either way, Trump looks like he doesn’t even know what he’s doing as he roams around.
You can watch the concerning footage below:

It was reported in the beginning of Trump’s overseas trip that he was exhausted by the second day, which was surprising considering how much Trump trashed Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton’s “stamina” (she has traveled far more extensively, by the way).
In this video, Trump hardly looks like he’s capable of carrying out this simple meeting and is 100% mentally checked out. After watching this footage, we must seriously question if Trump is mentally and physically capable of leading a country, or if it is even healthy and safe for him to do so, for his own sake.
