The difference between 2015 and 2019 is shocking. The energy level, clarity of speech, coherence-- the decline is stunning. The presidency usually ages people, but turning their brains to mush? His brain is turning to mush from some other cause.
I'm not disagreeing, but the former clips was from an exuberant campaign rally, in an environment where he thrives and feeds off of the energy in the room. The latter was a dry reading of a policy announcement in front of the White House. Maybe his slow, methodical speech was more boredom or an attempt to come across as "serious."

Any links to how he looked at his last campaign rally? That might be a bit more of an apples to apples comparison. And believe me, it pains me to give Trump any whiff of benefit of the doubt.
