U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday praised himself as “not smart, but genius…and a very stable genius at that”, following the release of a new book called in to doubt his mental health. In the series of early morning tweets Trump said that “throughout my life, my greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.”
Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames.
I went from VERY successful businessman, to Top T.V. Star to President of the United States [on my first try], I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius.. and a very stable genius at that.”
Earlier, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson found himself obliged to defend President Donald Trump’s fitness for office Friday after a new book called in to doubt his mental health. “I’ve never questioned his mental fitness.”
I’ve had no reason to question his mental fitness,” said Tillerson, whose office last year forced to deny reports that he had referred to Trump as a “moron” after a national security meeting.
And even defending President Donald Trump, the former ExxonMobile chief executive admitted that he has had to learn how to relay information to a President with a very different decision- making style. “I have to learn how he takes information in, process it and makes decisions,” Tillerson said, “I am here to serve his presidency. So I’ve to spend a lot of time understanding how to best communicate with him.”
But Tillerson emphasized the right decisions had been made and that the United States is in a stronger place internationally thanks to Donald Trump’s policies.
“He is not a typical President of the past, I think that’s well recognized- that is also why the American people chose him,” he said, insisting that he does not expect to be asked to resign in the coming year, a report said.
