    US Congresswoman Karen Bass has launched a petition on Wednesday urging clinical psychologists to carry out mental health evaluation of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The petition said Trump symptoms include a grandiose sense of self-importance, fantasies of unlimited success and demand for excessive admiration, among other criteria.

    "Mental health professionals need to come forward and urge the Republican party to insist that their nominee has an evaluation to determine his mental fitness for the job," the petition, published on change.org, said.

    Bass, who used to work in a medical field, argued that Trump shows symptoms of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), and introduced a hashtag "DiagnoseTrump."

    "Mr. Trump appears unable to control his compulsion and displays characteristics of all nine criteria to officially diagnose an individual with Narcissistic Personality Disorder."
