A CNBC journalist responded Saturday to President Trump's long press conference in Canada, saying he was concerned about the President's mental health – the latest Trump-related health problem in the media.
CNBC correspondent John Harwood commented on MSNBC's "AM Joy." Mediaite first reported on Harwood's comments.
Trump used the press conference to take a tough stance on tariffs and warned allies not to retaliate against US tariffs on aluminum and steel. He also criticized former US leaders for their handling of the crisis on the Korean peninsula and trade – something he has done several times.

But Harwood was worried.
"I'll be honest as a citizen: I'm worried about the President's attitude, he did not look good at this press conference," he said. "He did not speak logically or reasonably, it sounded like he was doing things and saying that China told me that no one ever talked to us and said," Oh, I talked to Justin Trudeau and can not believe he can handle so much trafficking.

The radical assessment was made by Mother Jones DC Office Manager David Corn, who said, "If you talked to me this morning. Just as we just heard Donald Trump talking, I would ask you if you had taken any meds and advise you not to use heavy machinery.
