Does Trump have Learning difficulties?

It is becoming increasingly clear that the united States is currently being lead by a person with mental health issues and/or mild learning difficulties. I say that in all seriousness. I came across this Young Turks video earlier: watching it, one gets a picture of an American President who literally has no idea what he's doing. The staff at the white House are becoming exasperated; Trump simply can not comprehend information they give to him as a person usually would. They say it's like they're dealing with a child. It reminds me of a guy with learning difficulties, brimming with confidence but who is unaware of his limitations.

Trump only got to where he is with the help of others. It is well documented how, as a businessman, he was an utter failure, and needed bailing out by people like his father. He was not responsible for his own success, then, yet he thinks he is. Trump thinks he's a great businessman; he thinks it was all his own doing. That sort of reminds me of a child with learning difficulties, whose Learning Support Assistant has helped to make some kind of model, yet takes the credit for it. Trump might not be arrogant - he might simply be unable to understand his limitations, not realising how much he does not understand. He has been pandered to and spoiled to the extent that he has failed to realise that he has limitations. He thinks he is a great man, and cannot understand why so many people are now so critical of him when they have always been so flattering in the past.

It all points towards the guy having some kind of learning difficulty or mental health issue. And as much as I support the inclusion of people with any kind of disability in mainstream society, I think questions must be asked about letting this man go on living out what is essentially his delusion, especially given so much is at stake.

Your post is offensive to people with learning difficulties or mental health issues. Donald Trump has narcissistic personality disorder, probably as a result of his upbringing. This is not a learning difficulty nor mental health illness.

Precisely why is what I wrote offensive? I just said the man clearly has mental health issues and problems understanding what he is told. Wouldn't you agree? Isn't narcissistic personality disorder a mental health issue?
