By RICHARD GRANT-FAIRFAX, APWASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s first term has been marked by controversy, turmoil and a political showdown with the House of Representatives.
Here are five things we know about the administration’s handling of his illness.
Trump’s mental health woes have been widely reported, but there has been no public acknowledgement of his condition.
Trump has said he does not need medical treatment.
The president has denied that he is bipolar, and has repeatedly insisted that he does suffer from “some form of depression” and “not all that severe.”
But Trump’s history with mental illness and its effect on the presidency has become a contentious issue, and Trump himself has used his illness to make claims about the president’s mental state and, in particular, the president of the United States.
Trump has said that he was a “good kid” who did well on the playground, and said he did well in school and on the basketball court.
In his book “The Art of the Deal,” Trump said that his childhood “was the most happy of my life.”
In October 2015, a video surfaced of Trump saying he was suffering from “mental illness,” and the Republican-controlled House of Representative passed a resolution calling for the president to be diagnosed and treated.
Trump later told ABC News that the resolution was not accurate, and he has since said he suffers from a “very, very severe mental illness.”
In his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, Trump blamed the Congressional Black Caucus for the resolution and said it was “not accurate.”
The bill was passed despite the fact that it did not include language about the health of the president, the White House said.
Trump said he would be a “great president” if he could “see that this was taken care of.”
The Congressional Black Legislative Caucus, a Democratic group, had been pushing for the Trump administration to declare the president a “person with a mental health issue” in the resolution.
But the White’s administration argued that it was the responsibility of the House.
“As members of the Congressional African American Caucus, we know how much the president has struggled with mental health issues over the years,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“He is a good kid who did very well on a playground and a good student and has done well in life, but he also suffers from mental illness.
The Congressional Black legislative caucus has been urging the White house to take this action.
They understand how difficult it is for the American people to understand the president with a severe mental health disorder.”
The House resolution was voted down by a vote of 205-194, with Democrats voting for it and Republicans voting against it. “
We also know that mental health is a top priority of the American public and the White Houses efforts are making a difference for millions of Americans, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Whitehouse on this important issue.”
The House resolution was voted down by a vote of 205-194, with Democrats voting for it and Republicans voting against it.
Trump told reporters on Tuesday that the White has “absolutely” been working with the Congressional black caucus, and that he would “absolutely take care of it” if elected.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the resolution “a disgrace,” and said that the Congressional Caucus had “no right” to call the president mentally ill.
“That was a disgrace, it was an affront to the American presidency,” Pelosi said.
Trump on Tuesday said the resolution had no effect on his decision-making, but that he had “learned a lot” from the experience.
Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in a Thursday interview that he learned “a lot” in his first term.
“It’s a little bit like learning a lot about yourself,” Trump told Hannity.
“I think the thing that I learned the most was to always be smart.
And, you know, you’re always going to have to be smart in the end.
You’re going to do things that are not right, but I learned a lot, you can’t have your head in the sand, because when you’re going into those decisions, you’ve got to make them, and you’ve gotta make the right decision, you have to make it in the right time.”
