Democratic Congressman Calls Trump 'Mentally Unstable'

Gallego, a former Marine, asked “Who in their right mind would attack a Gold Star family?”

Rep. Gallego (D-AZ) thinks there's more than evidence to suggest that there's something not quite right mentally with Donald Trump, and that he's unfit for the presidency.

For the second time in less than a week, U.S. Rep Ruben Gallego of Arizona questioned Donald Trump’s character and ability to run the country, this time calling him “unfit” and “mentally unstable.”

Gallego (D-Ariz.) told CNN on Tuesday morning that the GOP nominee for president was “unstable, he’s unfit to be a presidential candidate.”

The Arizona congressman’s remarks came a day after many Republican politicians took Trump to task for an angry tweet directed toward a Muslim family whose son died fighting for the U.S. in 2004.

“I want to keep this country safe and somebody like Donald Trump is unstable. He doesn’t understand the military … he clearly doesn’t have the temperament to be president of the United States,” Gallego said in the TV interview.

“This man is unstable, he is unfit to be a presidential candidate. … I do believe he’s mentally unstable,” Gallego, who served in the Marines, said. “Who in their right mind would attack a Gold Star family?”
