25. A Personality Disorder Is A Type Of Mental Illness

Someone with Narcissism and Sociopathic tendencies probably has a type of Personality Disorder. Check the DSM on this (the diagnostic guide for Psychiatry). If Trump has a Personality Disorder, he might be deemed unfit for office as per the 25TH Amendment. This is not to scapegoat people with Psychiatric issues. It is just that it is important that the President of the United States is mentally stable. If a panel of Psychiatrists finds that Trump is mentally ill with a Personality Disorder, that could be the basis for some attempt to remove him per the 25TH Amendment.

That said, the Republicans in the Congress might block this sort of move. In any case, I still think this is worth pursuing. Anything that harms Trump helps for 2018 and 2020. Even if a panel or commission does not remove Trump, there is political power and ammunition if a panel of Psych experts finds him to be unfit. This can be added to the arsenal of reasons to oppose Trump. It could help sway people to vote Trump out.
