Lindsey claimed to have enlisted two psychiatrists to diagnose Trump.

Lindsey also said Trump has no capacity to think ahead or long-term plans, saying the president had the long-term decision-making skills of “an empty chair,” according to Politico, citing people in both meetings. However, Lindsey said he supported Trump’s China policy and said some of the president’s personal traits could result in a deal with Chinese President Xi Jinping. He echoed Trump’s rhetoric on the ongoing trade war with China, saying the U.S. is in a stronger position than China and cannot be perceived as backing down.

Conway is a frequent critic of Trump and his lambasting of the president has often veered into assessments of his mental state, which prompted Conway’s wife to make a rare public break with him earlier this year. “Don't play psychiatrist any more than George should be,” Kellyanne Conway told Politico in March. “You're not a psychiatrist and he's not, respectfully.”
