UK’s May says she has no concerns about Trump’s mental state

British Prime Minister Theresa May dismisses concerns about Donald Trump’s mental fitness, saying the US president acts in what he sees as the best interests of his country.

A new book by journalist Michael Wolff quotes prominent Trump advisers as questioning the president’s competence.

Asked in an interview whether she thought concerns about Trump’s mental state were serious, May says: “No.”

She says that “when I deal with President Trump what I see is somebody who is committed to ensuring that he is taking decisions in the best interests of the United States.”

In the BBC interview, May reaffirms that Trump would visit Britain, but does not give a date, or say whether it would be a full state visit or a lower-key working trip.
