In response, Wen said if she were Trump’s doctor she would have security “restrain” him and perform a psychiatric evaluation. 



"If @realDonaldTrump  were my patient, in unstable condition + contagious illness, & he suddenly left the hospital to go for a car ride that endangers himself & others: I'd call security to restrain him then perform a psychiatric evaluation to examine his decision-making capacity," she wrote. 

Campus Reform reached out to Wen for further comment but did not receive a reply in time for publication.
