After Deadly Mass Shooting, Trump Says It Was 'A Mental Health Issue'

Said the man who's destroying mental health coverage and funding.


"We have a lot of mental health problems, as do other countries," Trump said today.

Oddly enough, those other countries rarely have mass shootings, because they don't have easy access to assault weapons.

Why is he trying to destroy the ACA, which for the first time required insurers to cover mental illness?

Because he's mentally ill, and has disordered, incoherent thinking about anything more complex than a reality show episode.
