Summary, etc.:
"He's only getting worse. Donald Trump's erratic behavior throughout his presidential campaign caused many of us to ask: What is wrong with him? After the election, politicians and pundits assured us he would change once he took office and would live up to his role as president. After spending two years in the most powerful position in the world, however, Trump has only gotten worse. He rants. He lashes out. He threatens violence. He holds rallies to rile up his supporters. And he lies constantly. He has become, to use the word of one former staffer, "unhinged." In this updated and expanded edition of the bestselling The Dangerous case of Donald Trump, the twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts who first took on their brave "duty to warn" the public about the dangers of Trump are now joined by ten more."--Dust jacket.
