Campaigning in New Hampshire, Donald Trump told those who might be depressed due to job loss or other circumstances what they could do to improve their mental health. You’ve probably already guessed what it is:
Donald Trump in NH: You may have lost your job, you may be in a state of depression… get up and vote! I will get rid of your depression.

Trump says he needs voters to show, even "if your wife has left you." "Get up and vote. I will get rid of your depression. You'll be happy!"

"I will get rid of your depression. You'll be happy."

Trump is now promising people that if they are suffering from mental depression, voting for him will solve it.

Trump’s comments didn’t thrill these people:
@mattklewis He's getting awfully close to the "I can make the waters recede" line. Or "I'm the one we've been waiting for"….

Trump will cure your depression because Trumpcare will cover any meds you want. No problem.

But not everybody had a negative opinion:
@amandacarpenter Actually there IS a cure for depression. And it's not hard.
We will use Trump to carry this Good News.

@mattklewis To be fair, as a Democrat, Trump as the GOP candidate does cure my depression.
