Trump Says He’s ‘Stable Genius,’ Wants Stronger Libel Laws

Donald Trump said he’s a “very stable genius,” a day after a new book about the president’s first year in the White House — dismissed by Trump as “fiction” — claimed that many of his top aides and confidants consider him unfit to hold office, Bloomberg informs.

“Throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames,” Trump said on Twitter early Saturday.

Trump is at the Camp David presidential retreat in rural Maryland, where he held meetings Friday afternoon and Saturday with top Republican lawmakers, White House aides and several Cabinet members, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, on legislative goals for the year and other pressing matters.

In the tweets, Trump added that he’d gone from being a very successful businessman to top TV star “….to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”

Trump defended his mental abilities at a press conference at Camp David on Saturday, recapping his path from the “best” university, where he said he was an “excellent” student, to a successful business and television career before pursuing politics.
