As someone who has spent a lot of time around President Trump, the anonymous administration official behind the upcoming book A Warning feels it is necessary to alert the public to Trump's behavior behind the scenes.

Several excerpts of the book were released on Thursday night, including one section focusing on Trump's mental acuity. The author writes that while they are "not qualified" to diagnose the president, "I can tell you that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness. He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity. Those who claim otherwise are lying to themselves or to the country."
