Ujest, I am on the spectrum, although let it be said, said "spectrum" is extremely wide, with all manner of functionality.
Trump ain't one of us. His son Baron, on the other hand, may very well be an Aspie.
Aspies do not mistrust strangers, they're just overwhelmed by the stimuli of interacting with them at times.

JJH, not a counter point or a push back, just an expression of what I have seen and learned and the basis.

Two half-brothers are and my youngest (high functioning Aspergers or Non-Verbal Learning Disorder depending on which profession you talk to) is.

Fellas, I know a few folks very much on the spectrum (which, as Jeff says, is very wide) as well as my own diagnosis. I believe Trump is mentally ill but not an Aspie, perhaps some narcissistic disorder, or something else along those lines. He may also be showing signs of dementia. As the late great Carlin put it: "The cheese fell off his cracker a while ago".

not a psychiatrist so nothing i say may mean anything

somewhere i read a headline which stated he had a 156 IQ .... i did not read any further but did think if he had an IQ that high I am a potato

i also read several articles which suggested using the current DSM and some CIA criteria, he was definitely narcissistic and not from a layman's perspective but from knowledgeable people

over the last 10 years i have been tracking my mother's progression into senility and do not see any of the signs in Mr Trump

one thing which strikes me as unusual is, it is reported he takes information in burst mode only. short attention span??? incapable of broadly assessing information??? .... i see this as more of a mental deficiency especially in a job which requires 3-d context

what may be more curious is why do the people who surround him always apologize for what he says and does???

If this is true then the IQ test must have been fake. Either that or the news report that asserted it.
From my experience people with that high an IQ can be eccentric, but he doesn't qualify, IMO, as eccentric.

On an unrelated related topic: does anyone know what ever happened to baby Melania?
