Donald Trump is a sociopath and I fear he’s losing his mind, says former US Labor Secretary

That’s very plausible. The problem: that would leave Pence in power:

A former US cabinet member has said he fears Donald Trump is “losing his mind” and argues it is time to consider his removal from office.

Robert Reich, the author and chancellor’s professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkley, is the former Labor Secretary to President Bill Clinton. He argues that it is “now time to seriously consider the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which provides for removal of a president who is ‘unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office’.”

Section four of the 25th Amendment allows Congress to form a body that can evaluate whether the president is fit for office, and remove him without impeaching him.

“I fear the man is losing his mind,” Mr Reich wrote. “Today Trump attacked Democrats (whom he called ‘Obstructionists!’), the Mayor of London (whom he derided as ‘pathetic’), and the judicial system (which he termed ‘slow and political!’).”
