Reporting on the G-7 summit in Quebec, CNBC reporter John Harwood said he was concerned about the mental health of President Donald Trump after he answered questions from journalists.
Speaking with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Hardwood expressed his concerns as a concerned citizen:
“I’ll be honest, as a citizen, I’m concerned about the president’s state of mind. He did not look well to me in that press conference. He was not speaking logically or rationally. It sounded as if he was making stuff up, saying, you know, ‘Oh, China told me nobody’s ever talked to us’ or saying, ‘Oh, you know, I talked to Justin Trudeau, and he can’t believe he was getting away with so much trade stuff.’”
I don’t think those things are true. There was something about his affect, which was oddly kind of languid from him. I don’t know what it means, but he did not look well to me.”

Mother Jones DC bureau chief David Corn agreed with Harwood’s assessment.
“If you were talking to me this morning the way we just heard Donald Trump talk, I would ask you if you’d taken any medication, advise you not to operate any heavy machinery,” he said.
Trump has been causing waves for his idea to possibly reinstate Russia into to the G-7 to make it the G-8 once again. Russia was kicked out of the G-8 for its occupation and annexation of Crimea.
“But with that being said, Russia should be in this meeting,” Trump said. “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?”
