Trump Is Mentally 'Unraveling,' May Be Tackled by Staff If He Tries to Launch Nukes


An explosive report in Vanity Fair finds President Donald Trump fuming behind closed doors and succumbing to dark, unstable moods.

“I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” he reportedly told his security chief Keith Schiller.

A former official suggested that Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis have discussed what to do in the event Trump tries to launch nuclear weapons. “Would they tackle him?” the individual said.

Among the most startling revelation is that "some West Wing advisers were worried that Trump’s behavior could cause the Cabinet to take extraordinary constitutional measures to remove him from office." 

This is a reference to the 25th Amendment, which allows the Cabinet to remove an unstable president. Steve Bannon explained this possibility to Trump in the past, who reportedly responded, "What's that?"

A source told Vanity Fair that Bannon believes there is a 70 percent chance Trump will not complete his term as president.
