President Donald Trump's brain may be suffering from cognitive decline as he prepares to turn 71 next month, a new report claims.

STAT, a publication that covers health and medicine, wrote a detailed story about Trump's language and his tendency to ramble, go off topic, and speak in incomplete sentences.

The reasons for that, according to the report, might be due to his age.

"It's hard to say definitively without rigorous testing, but I think it's pretty safe to say that Trump has had significant cognitive decline over the years," psychologist John Montgomery of New York University told STAT.

The story provides examples of recent Trump interviews and other press appearances that demonstrate his unique speaking style. STAT also references interviews Trump did in the 1980s and 1990s, during which he sounded more articulate.

"His language difficulties could be due to the immense pressure he's under, or to annoyance that things aren't going right and that there are all these scandals," neuropsychologist and Alzheimer's disease expert Sterling Johnson told STAT.

"It could also be due to a neurodegenerative disease or the normal cognitive decline that comes with aging."

Other stories have been written about Trump's language, including a Newsweek piece last summer that suggested Trump's "brash and outrageous statements" show his supporters that he tells the truth and that he is not a polished career politician.
