Trump had a bit of a eventful day on Monday - even by his standards.

In the day of a thousand crazy comments, Trump was interviewed by Bloomberg, Face the Nation and the SiriusXM radio network. During some of these interviews he questioned why the Civil war needed to happen and doubled-down on his appreciation of Andrew Jackson, the slave-owning 7th President of the States.

He also praised Rodrigo Duterte the dictator of the Philippines; who is waging a drug war in his country, admits to having killed people and openly encourages murdering drug addicts - although President Duerte thinks he might be too busy to visit the Donald.

POTUS also said it would be 'an honour' to meet Kim Jong-Un, the North Korean dictator he's been dangerously close to sparking a nuclear war with. He also disparaged the idea of his party's healthcare bill (that's been dubbed 'Trumpcare') and he stopped an interview after a reporter asked him about allegations he'd put against Obama's office with regards to wiretapping.

In an interview with Politico, one of Mr Trump's aides reportedly said:

He just seemed to go crazy

The website also report that they spoke to a second staffer, who told them:

They were not helpful to us. There was no point to do all of them.

It's lead to lots of media outlets questioning his mental health,

Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian told Politico

It seems to be among the most bizarre recent 24 hours in American presidential history. 

It was all just surreal disarray and a confused mental state from the president.
