Donald Trump is known for shooting from the hip, so when he commented on President Obama’s mental health during a recent interview, people took notice. It starts with confusion that many are left with today after the President refuses to place a travel ban on flights coming in from West Africa. This would be a strategy that many feel is the best defense against an Ebola outbreak on U.S. soil.
Trump was on “The Steve Malzberg Show” when the host wanted to know more about a tweet from Trump about Obama’s mental health. Trump’s recent tweet questioned the mental health of the president and it became the topic of the conversation between Trump and Malzberg, according to the Breitbart Report on Oct. 17.
Trump had tweeted; “I am starting to think that there is something seriously wrong with President Obama’s mental health. Why won’t he stop flights? Psycho!” He called the president of the U.S. a “psycho,” which is not something people in Trump’s position do every day.
The Source reports that Malzberg asked the real estate mogul if he stands by questioning the president’s mental health and Trump said, “There is something wrong and nobody knows what it is, but there’s something wrong. There are so many bad decisions. Can anybody be that incompetent? There is something very wrong.”
The Huffington Post reports today that After Trump’s appearance on the Malzberg show, he again tweeted about Obama saying; “Looks like Obama will not stop the very potentially dangerous flights to and from West Africa. What the hell is wrong with this guy?” While Trump might have tweeted it, many are thinking the same thing today, which is why won’t he stop these flights?
Apparently Trump does stand by his tweet. He isn’t the only one questioning Obama’s decision not to stop flights coming into the U.S. from the Ebola infected areas. Even the government of Belize became proactive this week when they learned a Carnival Cruise ship was carrying a passenger who was possibly exposed to Ebola and they refused the ship’s passengers entry into their country.
Most every mother out there has kept their child home from school at one time or another because they were coming down with a cold or a virus. Mom’s main reason is to keep their kids home is so they recuperate, but they also don’t want their child to spread the illness throughout the classroom.
By stopping the Ebola from seeping into the country any more than it has already, experts feel an epidemic could be avoided, but yet the president refuses to impose a travel ban from West African countries into this country. Other countries on the continent of Africa have imposed a travel ban on the Ebola infected areas of West Africa.
