Overall Mental Wellness Drops Days After Start of Trump Administration

Update Date: Feb 03, 2017 07:40 AM EST

The impact of the new Trump administration to Americans is so uncertain, historians are starting to see the possibility of an authoritarian government in the US. Communities are starting to get anxious about the future of Muslims, low-income communities, immigrants and other non-US backgrounds as the new administration makes changes and amendments in the previous Obama administration.

Huffington Post reveals that after two weeks since Trump was seated into the presidency, the latest US president has already reinstated the Global Gag Rule and has also promised to revive the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines, ceased the immigration of Muslim countries to the US and is planning to build a wall between America and Mexico.

With the intense move of the new government, access to healthcare and protection from racial violence are just some of the challenges, minorities are anxious about in the present administration.

US News, on the other hand, reported several mass protests across the Americas during the first week of Trump's seat into the presidency. The raising fear about the president's next moves is seriously affecting the mental wellness of the people.

Psychotherapists are considering the new president's behavior. John D.  Gartner, a psychotherapist at the Hopkins University Medical School provided a professional assessment on Trump's personality. He thinks that Trump is mentally ill and his temperaments make him incapable of becoming president. In addition, he sees Trump's narcissistic behavior as incurable.

Temperaments and personalities of former presidents were also comprehensively examined by professionals to figure out what makes the most powerful man in America tick. Former US President Richard Nixon was regarded as paranoid by most professionals. Former President Bill Clinton, on the other hand, is known for his hypomanic personality, describing him as highly energetic, hard-working and creative, but is also impulsive and has a quick temper at the same time.
