So when was Trump given a mental health evaluation, where he sat down with a fully qualified liscenced mental health person and a statement on record of such?
Contrary to what many are saying and thinking, the only time a doctor would even look at neurological health, is if there is a concern for such, and then it usually is brought up to said doctor by someone who would intimately know the person. Beyond that, and I have this on experience, doctors would not go into doing any sort of neurological testing or even looking at mental health, unless there is just cause that warrants such.

The quality of candidates is a whole nuther issue.
But relying on the will of the people has worked Well enough i dont see a reason the change. Especially in favor of weaponizing a pseudoscience.
Do you not think that the stress of being President is sometimes a bit overwhelming for any person? Or that the President may or may not have a bit of a mental health issue?
Would it not be for the best that the person, whose finger is on the proverbial button, actually be mentally healthy as not to launch a nuclear weapon?
Would you not agree that in the past, that there has been times a sitting president should have had mental health, that they were either having a mental breakdown, or actually had a medical problem that not only could have but did affect their ability to make a decision and do the job, and that as a precaution, that such be given?
Don't you think it would be prudent that the president be given both physical and mental health evaluations, to ensure he is healthy and that no one ever have to exercise 25?

So why is the question of the President's mental health such a bad question, where within one life time there have been 2 presidents that have had mental health issues?

Trump aside, wouldn't you prefer that there should be some sort of "minimum qualification" that prevented Kim Kardashian from being your next president? Because you know people are going to vote for her even though we all know she couldn't possibly do the job - even those that voted for her. Hypothetically speaking.
We have been lied to. It’s as simple as that. The Warren Commission lied to us, and in my opinion, we have not had a real president in the white house since the JFK assassination, with the exception of Ronald Reagan, and they tried to kill him too.
JFK – Our last President?
Donald Trump fashions himself a populist, anti-establishment President in the mold of Andrew Jackson. Some key advisors have made the comparison directly. Rudy Giuliani, for example, has claimed that Trump’s win last November was “like Andrew Jackson’s victory. It was the people beating the establishment.”
President Trump, Meet the Real President Jackson
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people...”
"Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand." ~ Benjamin Disraeli; Prime Minister of England
Past presidents of the United States and other high profile political leaders have repeatedly issued warnings over the last 214 years that the U.S. government is under the control of an “invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

Dr. Jackson said that while he "had no intention" of giving Trump a cognitive exam, the President specifically asked him to do one. "I didn't feel it was clinically indicated," he said. "The reason we did the cognitive assessment is plain and simple because the president asked me to do it," the doctor said. Trump passed the exam. "The President did exceedingly well on it," the doctor said. "That was not driven at all by any concerns I had. It was driven by the President's wishes and he did well on it." "There’s no indication that he has any kind of cognitive issues," Dr. Jackson said. "On a day-to-day basis, it has been my experience the president is very sharp. Very articulate when he speaks to me."
