“I must tell you that Mr. Trump is a man to whose utterances no attention should be paid. He is to all intents and purposes half-witted. Life in a tower, with its lack of intellectual stimulus, has caused his natural feebleness of mind to reach a stage which borders closely on insanity. His relatives look on him as virtually an imbecile and have, in my opinion, every cause to do so.”
