Donald Trump's behavior on the campaign trail could be a result of lack of sleep, according to The Huffington Post.

Trump has long mentioned how little sleep he gets, according to a 2015 report in the Chicago Tribune in which Trump said he sleeps "three hours, four hours, I toss, I turn."

HuffPost points to the effects of sleep deprivation, including increasing likelihood that the sleep-deprived will be more emotional, prone to bad decisions, have trouble learning, remembering, focusing, and making inappropriate moral decisions.

Timothy Egan, editorial writer for The New York Times notes those who aren't getting enough sleep are "more impulsive, less adaptable and prone to snappish decisions, and they have trouble listening to others. Smaller things set them off."

"When I see puffy eyes and face, I don't see a man who will carefully weigh all the facts and consequences of an action that could affect everyone on the planet," Egan said, adding, "I see an impulsive, vainly insecure person who cannot shut his mind down for the night."

Ariana Huffington, co-founder of The Huffington Post, weighed in on Trump's lack of sleep during a commencement speech at Maine's Colby College, saying the real estate mogul displays all the symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation, including "mood swings, fogged memories, incomprehension of a comprehensible problem, and the occasional re-tweeting of Mussolini," reports CentralMaine.com.
