    Could Donald Trump's own mental health challenges eventually derail the white Supremacist RAISE Act and the rest his anti-immigrant agenda?

    Any US president, no matter how powerful, needs Congressional friends and allies in order to put through is agenda.

    Latest reports indicate that Trump's constant fighting with his natural supporters in his own party, such as, in the latest example, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) may be causing the president to run out of friends.

    One report quotes Fox News host Neil Cavuto, a normally friendly commentator, as questioning Trump's own sanity because of his tendency to pick fights with his own national allies. Cavuto warns that Trump may be soon be running out of friends.

    Cavuto also "wonders" whether the president is "sound".

    If Trump's possible loss of Congressional support due to his alleged mental health problems leads to abandoning his Europeans only immigration policies, such as the RAISE Act, Muslim ban orders and mass arrest and deportation agenda targeting mainly Hispanic, Black and Asian immigrants, that would unquestionably be a good thing.

    But what if Trump's mental health issues, as evidenced by his unrelenting and hostile attacks as candidate and president against Latino, Muslim and other non-white immigrants, led to his bigoted whites-only immigration agenda in the first place?

    Is this not a question that not only immigrants, but more and more Americans, will be asking themselves as time goes on?

    For more on Trump's mental health issues, see also Salon.com's October 11 article about an interview with Dr. Bandy Lee, professor of law and psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and editor of the new book:

    The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President

    The Salon article is available at:

    Based on the above and other similar reports, immigrants are not the only people in America (and the world) who may be in danger from the current president of the United States.

    No one would claim that Democratic former US Secretary of Labor (in the Clinton administration) Robert Reich is an objective, non-partisan analyst of current affairs. Having said that, he is an astute political observer and has a well earned reputation for not being afraid to speak out honestly and directly.

    In his latest (October 13) alternet.org column, Reich writes about a conversation with a former Republican Congressman friend (name not given) concerning the friend's views on what Republican leaders are saying about the nation's president, Donald Trump.

    Reich quotes the former GOP Congressman in part as follows:

    "I'm just glad I'm not there anymore. Trump's not just a moron. He's a despicable human being. And he's getting crazier. Paranoid. Unhinged. Everyone knows it."

    http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-pol...licans-know-it

    If this is an accurate description of what leaders in Trump's own party are now saying about him, what does this augur for the future of immigration policy in this administration, not to mention the future of America and the world?

    Stories like this could also explain why Trump is moving toward fascism in America by threatening to "revoke" the free speech rights of NBC and other media which publish negative or unflattering stories about him.

    Robert Reich is far from being the only commentator in America who is now voicing concerns, not only over the president's commitment to democracy and the fundamental values of a free society, but also about Trump's mental health.
