US Presidential Mental Health: The World’s Most Powerful Post and Nervous Examination
President Trump is not the first US president to describe his political opponents and those associated with the medical profession as ‘mentally unstable’.
Experts say some of his predecessors were obsessive, depressed, dual-personality and mentally ill.
In the summer of 1776, rebels were suffering so much in the American War of Independence that George Washington attempted to commit suicide at the hands of the British Army. According to his biographer Ron Chernau, the 44-year-old Supreme Commander George Washington lost his senses when the rebel militia began to flee the port of Manhattan.
George Washington, riding the horse’s back, disappeared and began staring at the sky while more than a dozen British soldiers were speeding toward a field.
In the future, his colleague, who became a trusted specialty of the US president, grabbed his horse and dragged him to a safe place.
One of his generals, Nathaniel Green, later said that George Washington, a native of Virginia, was so disappointed with the performance of his troops that he had decided to prioritize death over life.
The nervousness faced by George Washington proves that even in extreme crisis situations, leaders are under pressure.
Now, if you bring 250 years ahead, one of George Washington’s political heirs is facing a tougher test.
Talks have been going on about the president’s psychological condition since the day that Donald Trump took office. Even articles like this are being published that aim to prove America’s 45th president a mentally ill.
These articles have been published under the headlines: Dangerous Case of Donald Trump (Dangerous Case of Donald Trump): Twenty-seven Psychiatrists and Psychiatrists Introducing Rocket-President’s Nuclear Madness and Mind of Donald Trump (Nuclear Madness and Donald Trump) Mind), A Clear and Present Danger (a clear and present danger), Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump (narcissism during Donald Trump’s time), Toilet of American Sanity (Syrian shadow over American intellect).
But President Trump, who claims that he is a balanced and intelligent man, is by no means the first US president to be called a madman.
Jefferson, often his rival Jefferson, said of the second president of the United States that he was “sometimes crazy.”
Jefferson’s party spokesman from the US state of Philadelphia, Jr. ‘Philadelphia Aurora’ then wrote that ‘John Adams has lost his senses.’
Likewise, Theodore Roosevelt’s psychological journal ‘Journal of Abnormal Psychology’ suggested that ‘they will be presented as a great example of the process of consciousness in history’.
When Roosevelt was running for re-election in 1912, renowned American historian Henry Adams said that Roosevelt’s brain was broken, and his nervous system could respond or They can be crazy.
When Woodrow Wilson visited the stroke, his critics pointed to the woods on the windows of the first floor of the White House, saying that the White House had become a haven for lunatics.
But in John Wolfson’s biography, John Milton Cooper writes that these ravens were set in Teddy Roosevelt’s presidency so that his boys would not break window glasses from baseball.
According to psychological studies of the first 37 US soldiers, Adams, Roosevelt and Wilson had psychological problems.
According to a 2006 study, 49% of US presidents were suffering from mental illness at some point in their lives. (These estimates are consistent with US national statistics, according to researchers.) Of these, 27% had the same effect during their reign.
According to a team from Duke University’s Medical Center in the US state of North Carolina, all four of these presidents had symptoms of depression and those presidents included James Madison and Widdowson.
The same team said of Teddy Roosevelt and John Adams that they were duplicitous, while Thomson Jefferson and Ulysses Grant had complained of ‘social incompetence’ or social anxiety.
Professor Johnathan Davidson, who led the research, said that such work stresses create mental problems, especially in people who already have such problems.
“The president has a lot of mental pressure and no one has the ability to endure that pressure constantly.”
Woodrowlson suffered a stroke in 1919 when he was trying to get the Treaty Versailles approved.
This led to his depression, which lasted until the end of his presidency in 1919.
During this time, First Lady Edith Wilson continued to run for president, and opponents continued to criticize her as a “petit-coat government” or female rule.
When Wilson was ousted from power, a newspaper reporter said that he had lost his original personality.
Paralyzed with grief
Two more presidential periods are thought to have worsened because of depression.
According to Professor Davidson, Calvin Coolidge and Franklin Pierce were also ineffective leaders because of depression, depression and death of their sons.
Pierce suffered severe mental trauma as soon as he took the presidency in 1853. Jane and her son Benjamin, the wife of the 14th president of the United States, boarded the train that crashed in Andover Massachusetts.
The bogie he was riding in fell victim to the accident and Benjamin died on the spot. He was the last surviving son of three boys born to Pierce.
The president of the Democrat wrote a letter to his defense minister, Jefferson Davis, in which he wrote that it was a difficult task for him to put all his energy into fulfilling his responsibilities.
Professor Davidson says Pierce was unable to exercise his powers because of his internal wounds and went on to civil war.
He was the only president of the United States elected to his office, but his party abandoned him in the next election.
During Pierce’s tragedy and a critical time when the nation was on the brink of civil war, it is said that because of the heavy responsibilities of the president, his old habits of drinking became more severe.
According to his biographer Michael F. Holt, Pierce died of liver disease.
Collage assumed the presidency as a hopeful, hard-working, and energetic man, but in 1924 his 16-year-old son, Calvin Jr., went on to play tennis wearing a ‘trainer and stockings’ at the White House tennis court. He had a thorn in his foot, the wound of which later became worse and he died from poisoning in the blood.
The president’s biographer, Amity Schell, writes that collage has always been responsible for his son’s death.
He had built poles for his wife, his second son and his own graves in his life.
He used to say that whenever he looked outside the White House window, his son was seen playing tennis.
After the trauma, his attitude became very strange. They often depended on their advisors, family and guests.
During a dinner in the White House, he became engrossed in a photo of President John Quincy Adams, and in that photo he began to object that the president’s head looked brighter.
Collage ordered one of the employees to put a ladder on the head of Adams in the painting so that it did not look so bright.
John Quincy Adams also suffered from depression or depression, and he used to move around in a sad depression in the presidency. According to his biographer Harlow Kyle Ongar, he used to play billiards or make fun of his British-born wife.
The collage later shifted from political life. The most worrying thing was that a year before the Wall Street recession in 1929, they were completely unaware of the economic crisis and had not heard the alarm.
During the legislation to curb common stock exchanges in the stock exchange, he told media representatives that he did not know what it was, what its provisions were and what was being discussed.
The 30th president of the United States wrote in his biography that when his son separated from him, he took all the glory of his position with him.
He said he did not know why he had to pay such a high cost of living in the White House.
In contrast, several other presidents have been able to overcome their personal traumas and accidents.
Theodore Roosevelt suffered severe trauma and depression at the beginning of his political career in 1884 on the death of his young wife and mother on Valentine’s Day.
He wandered through the barren areas of the state of Dakota for a few years and built a cattle ranch there. During this time he was busy hunting buffaloes.
According to biographer David Herbert Donald, Abraham Lincoln has been a victim all his life.
In 1841, while he was working as a state legislator in Springfield (Illinois), his fiancee Marie Todd severed her relationship, leaving her in severe depression.
One of his friends started monitoring him for fear of committing suicide and removed knives and razors from his room.
Rumors were heated in the capital that they had gone crazy.
Because of his persistent grief, his advisers were forced to think about how the death of their eleven-year-old child due to typhoid during the American War of Independence affected their minds and how they got away with it.
Lincoln told his cabinet that he was thinking of taking his own life in the throat, after a shameful defeat in the second war of the same year.
But despite these tragedies, the 16th president of the United States kept himself and the state in control.
Immediately after the death of his son Wiley, he removed his unpopular military commander, George McLean.
Instead, a gloomy, embarrassed drunk drowned by the bloody Ulysses Grant, who made the Union troops victorious.
Experts believe that some of the leaders have benefited to some extent, despite the right disease.
A study by Emory University in 2012 found that several presidents, including Bill Clinton, had the effects of psychiatric disorders.
Two of the most psychotic patients found were Linden Benz Johnson and Andrew Jackson, whom President Trump considers heroes.
The psychological problems that Emory’s team identified included unrealistic selfishness, selfishness, dissatisfaction, misconduct, stubbornness, habit of taking risks, loss of consciousness and apathy.
Every president was included in this research, except current President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama.
Professor Lelenfeld, head of the study, says he fears that all of these problems will pose to everyone.
He said that because of them, people also succeeded in reaching higher positions, ‘for example, Linda Johns’s Anna was as big as her state of Texas’.
According to his autobiographer Robert Caro, he openly campaigned for the Senate in 1948, and he shamelessly joked about it.
Johnson used to put her hand in the skirt of the woman sitting on the sidelines while his wife was sitting with him.
He enjoyed insulting his staff and calling on him to seek his dictation while urinating or hijabing.
The common perception about the naval skirmish in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964 is that Lyndon Johnson lied, which probably led to the end of his political life. Johnson used the same incident in the US war in Vietnam. Intervention made possible.
Four years after Linda Johnson announced that she would not be running for presidency again due to the circumstances created by aggressive resistance in Vietnam.
Andrew Jackson, who signed the genocide of indigenous peoples under the Indian Removal Act, is remembered today as a tyrant while he was the only president in American history whose debt was repaid.
President Bill Clinton’s reputation was damaged by a sex scandal.
Some presidents did not face pressure from the Oval Office better than others.
Even as vice-president, Richard Nixon was using depression medication and swallowing those drugs with alcohol.
The biographer John Farrells writes that during the Watergate crisis, President Nixon drank excessively and was overwhelmed.
Similarly, Henry Kissinger once stated that President Nixon could not even speak to the British Prime Minister over the telephone because of being drunk one day during the crisis in the Middle East.
So is President Trump mentally ill?
Whether or not Professor Davidson is diagnosed.
He cites the ongoing debate among experts internationally whether narcissism is a disorder of personality.
But Nasir Ghami is also the author of a book on the subject and believes that there are signs of ‘madness’ in President Trump.
Donald Trump, a professor of psychology at the Tufts School of Medicine, says Donald Trump ‘doesn’t sleep well and has excessive physical energy.’
“They are unable to focus their attention on anything and their nature.”
According to the professor, these qualities have been very helpful during his presidential campaign.
“He used to talk about things that a normal, mentally healthy and well-balanced man like Hillary Clinton couldn’t do.”
We are often told that President Trump’s presidency has broken historical principles.
But the strange and difficult lives of the former soldier raises the question of what is repetitive?
