Author Stephen King slammed President Trump on Wednesday, saying Trump’s tweets show that “he’s an almost textbook case of personality disorder.”

King also signaled fear over Trump’s ability to launch a nuclear attack.

“That this guy has his finger on the nuclear trigger is worse than any horror story I ever wrote,” King said.


King has been a frequent critic of Trump and his policies. In March he wrote a short story in a series of tweets mocking Trump’s accusation that former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaThe Memo: Biden, bruised by Afghanistan, faces a critical test in Ukraine Is the US capable of thinking strategically?

He also called Trump “emotionally unqualified” for the presidency after the president attacked actress Meryl Streep on Twitter. 

King’s comments come as lawmakers are pushing a bill that would deny Trump the authority to launch a first strike with a nuclear weapon without congressional approval.
