  • Donald Trump mixed up information about his dad and grandfather
  • The POTUS sparked rumors he has dementia
  • Donald Trump has been showing signs that he could have dementia 

Donald Trump has reportedly been showing some obvious signs that he could be suffering from dementia. And over the years, his alleged condition has only gotten worse.

During a previous interview, the POTUS shared basic information about his late father, Fred Trump. He said that his dad was a German and Fred was born in Germany.

But according to USA Today, this is incorrect because Fred is from the Bronx. Trump’s grandfather is the one from Germany.

According to the Dementia Care International, one indication that a person’s dementia is getting worse is if the individual starts to mix up relationships and generations, which is exactly what the POTUS did. As such, it is possible that he’s in the second stage of dementia.

Other than mixing up information about his father and grandfather, Trump also struggles to remember certain dates. For instance, he thought that he met Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg just a few weeks ago when their meeting took place in October.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, the White House doctor, previously revealed that the POTUS agreed to undergo a cognitive assessment in an attempt to debunk the ongoing narrative that he is suffering from dementia. The results revealed that Trump’s brain is still functional.

However, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment isn’t necessarily a comprehensive exam that could determine what’s really going on with the president. One of the things that the POTUS had to do was to identify what a camel looks like, and he did this with ease.

But USA Today claimed that this doesn’t necessarily refute all of the other signs that could indicate that there’s really something wrong with Melania Trump’s husband.

Declining complexity of thought, rambling speech, difficulty completing a thought, markedly declining vocabulary over recent years, with an overreliance on superlatives, episodes of slurred speech, failure to recognize old friends are just some of the things that the POTUS has done throughout the past couple of years.

However, an official diagnosis still hasn’t been released.
