During an interview that was aired some time ago with an author who interviewed the former president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, after leaving the White House, it was so evident that the man has severe memory problems.

Ramin Setoodeh, Variety Co-Editor-In-Chief, writes about his book "Apprentice in Wonderland" and was on Morning Joe- MSNBC to explain more about it; he mentioned that the interviews with Trump in person were conducted six times, starting in 2021 alone.

The revelation comes as Trump staged a cognitive test for the 'Sleepy Joe' Biden, in which Trump himself failed repeatedly to recall the doctor's name who conducted the test on him during his presidency.

The doctor is Rep. Ronny Jackson, a Republican from Texas, today an open Trumpist in Congress.

In the regime of contemplating the weekend episode, Setoodeh wrote, 'Donald Trump had severe memory issues.' He went on to say, 'Ironically, as the journalist who shadowed him on the campaign trail most extensively, it had become clear to me that he could not remember things: he could not even remember me.'

Trump's Vacant Look

Setoodeh recounted an instance when he and Trump spoke for an hour in May 2021. A few months later, during another interview at Trump Tower in Manhattan, Trump had "a vacant look on his face" and no recollection of their previous lengthy discussion.

"He wasn't doing a lot of interviews at that time, so I think the American public really needs to see this portrait of Donald Trump," Setoodeh continued. The Trump campaign swiftly dismissed the claims about his memory. "President Trump was aware of who this individual was throughout the interview process, but this 'writer' is a nobody and insignificant, so of course he never made an impression," Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung stated, according to Forbes.

Cheung further criticized Setoodeh, suggesting he had succumbed to "Trump Derangement Syndrome" like others whose lives revolve around the former president. Setoodeh's book, "Apprentice in Wonderland," explores the behind-the-scenes story of "The Apprentice," the reality series that propelled Trump to the White House.

According to the author, the interviews also depicted a former president driven by a desire for revenge, a fixation on famous people, and a dangerous knack for captivating audiences. Setoodeh and Trump spent hours in the boardroom at Trump Tower rewatching old clips from "The Apprentice" for the book.

The synopsis promises to shed light on the never-fully-told story of the show that significantly impacted Trump's political journey.
