01) Trump Calls for ‘Involuntary Confinement’ of Mentally Ill in Shooting Address

“President Trump called mass shooters “mentally ill monsters” and advocated for the increased use of involuntary commitment “when necessary” during his Monday speech in response to two mass shootings over the weekend that left a total of 31 people dead. “We must reform our mental-health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence,” Trump said, “and make sure those people, not only get treatment, but when necessary, involuntary confinement.” Most states have three tiers of involuntary commitment already in place, and all states have some sort of civil commitment.”

02) Trump news – live: President fails to propose gun law change after mass shootings, as Obama warns leaders are feeding ‘climate of fear’

“Donald Trump referred to the shooting suspects in a series of nationwide gun massacres as “mentally ill monsters” and named the wrong US city involved in yet another American mass shooting during a controversial speech on Monday.”

Apparently, the American Psychological Association has come out against this.

Unfortunately…I cannot locate anything on their official website.
