Bill Kristol Warns Trump is ‘Unstable’: He Lacks ‘The Psychological State to Be Trusted as President’

Bill Kristol said on MSNBC this afternoon that there are more people growing concerned about President Donald Trump‘s psychological state as the 2020 election draws closer.

The issue of the president’s mental fitness was raised this weekend by George Conway, husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, following Trump’s tweetstorm Sunday:

Kristol told Katy Tur this afternoon that the tweets give insight into Trump’s psychological state, something that he said more people are growing concerned about:

“This weekend, people who haven’t agreed with me, people who have said to me over and over ‘oh, come on, Bill, the tweets are annoying and vulgar and even a little bit disagreeable… but, you know, the tax cuts are good and the judges are good,’ I’d say this weekend a few people said, ‘You know, maybe this really shows that he’s not stable, he doesn’t have the psychological state to be trusted as president, especially of an additional four years.”

Kristol added that while Republicans won’t reverse positions or rethink their 2016 votes, the idea of four more years of an “increasingly unhinged” president might get some to rethink a few things.
