Top House Republicans who attended a presentation about China and trade on this week also received a psychological profile of President Trump.

Sadiq Khan: Trump, Obama and Bush are not in "same class"

Sadiq Khan: Trump, Obama and Bush are not in Donald Trump is not worthy of his upcoming ceremonial state visit to Britain, suggested London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Friday, saying that the US President is not "in the same class" as his predecessors. Most US presidents have not made state visits to the UK—the exceptions are Barack Obama, who visited in 2011 and George W. Bush, who visited in 2003. "History tells us only two [US] Presidents have had a state visit," Khan said during an interview on British radio station LBC. "President Trump is not in the same class as those two.

Former George W. Bush Treasury official Bruce Bartlett has claimed that “all (100%) of Trump supporters are racists.” “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump ’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.

But Lindsey also came prepared Tuesday with his own research on Trump’s character, telling Republican lawmakers that he had asked two psychologists to evaluate the president from afar. The professionals found that Trump was a “10 out of 10 narcissist,” Lindsey told the Republicans, according to a GOP aide present at the talk.

“That’s what he scored,” Lindsey said, clarifying this wasn’t just his opinion.

Lindsey continued with more armchair psychology, diagnosing Trump’s behavior as a symptom of his upbringing and a mother who didn’t pay enough attention to him.

Biographers have struggled to build a full portrait of Trump’s mother, Mary, a Scottish immigrant who the president has described as a demanding woman with a stern Presbyterian faith and a love of pageantry and showmanship. Some executives who knew Trump in the early stages of his career said Trump’s mother spoiled him, yet she’s only a thinly described figure in Trump’s own retelling of his childhood.

A former speechwriter for President George W. Bush has made a chilling prediction that conjures up images of Stalinist Russia.

George W. Bush and Barack Obama emerged from political seclusion and denounced the politics of division, sending a message to their successor in the White House. Former President George W. Bush defended free trade and railed against populist rhetoric in an implicit criticism of President Trump .

Lindsey also compared Trump’s long-term planning ability to that of an “empty chair.”

The riff on Trump, first reported by Politico, lasted about two minutes as part of a longer presentation on China. Lindsey was otherwise complimentary about how Trump has handled the trade conflict.

Lindsey also shared a character analysis of Xi, calling him a “sociopath.” He described the two nations’ standoff “existential” and said both the United States and China cannot win so the U.S. has to stay tough.

“It was actually an informative and interesting conversation,” the GOP aide said.

Members in attendance did not attempt to challenge Lindsey’s characterization of Trump, aides said.

“I think most were a little taken aback but no one interrupted,” another GOP aide said. “I was surprised McCarthy didn’t since it was his guest.”

McCarthy’s spokesman Matt Sparks declined to comment.

A person with narcissistic personality disorder will exhibit such traits as a “grandiose sense of self-importance,” “requires excessive admiration,” “is interpersonally exploitative” and “shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.” There are actually nine traits of people with narcissistic personality disorder, rather than 10.

Many mental health professionals have tried to diagnose Trump from a distance despite the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” prohibiting psychiatrists from assessing public officials if they did not evaluate them in person.

But some have challenged that rule, arguing it is their “duty to warn” the public if they determine there’s enough evidence to suggest Trump has a serious mental health issue. A petition to that effect was signed by 70,699 mental health professionals.
