Former Reagan and Bush Advisor: ‘Pray for Our Country’

Donald Trump at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2014
Late Saturday a former adviser to President Ronald Reagan and both Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush warned that he has observed Donald Trump becoming more erratic and unstable since entering the Oval Office -- he then urged Americans to "pray for our country."

Taking to Twitter after a full day of Trump tweets attacking his foes left and right, Peter Wehner, a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, issued a dark appraisal of the commander-in-chief.

"Mr. Trump was emotionally/psychologically unwell when he became president. His condition is clearly worsening. He's becoming more volatile, erratic and unstable. At some point he's going to blow apart. When he does it'll create a crisis," Wehner wrote, before adding, "This won't end well. Pray for our country."

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough retweeted the comment and seconded the sentiment, writing, "Anyone who has known Trump for years, and doesn't have a stake in his political career or the GOP, says the same. He is unwell and has been getting progressively worse over the past 18 months."

Wehner recently appeared on CNN and lashed out at Trump's defenders, telling host Brooke Baldwin: "With these people, there's no bottom when it comes to defending Donald Trump."
