Trump To Get First Presidential Medical Checkup

Trump To Get First Presidential Medical Checkup

Trump won't undergo a psychiatric exam as part of the physical, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Trump noted his success in business, reality TV and presidential politics, saying, "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius... and a very stable genius at that!"

Dr Ronny L Jackson, a Navy rear admiral who is the president's official physician and director of the White House Medical Unit, is coordinating the exam. Jackson provided care for President Barack Obama, conducting and supervising the last of three physicals Obama had during his eight years in office. Bornstein later provided a fuller accounting of Trump's medical status, which was unveiled with considerable drama during a televised sit-down Trump had with celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz in September 2016. The results of this exam, along with global, not specific results that the American people are used to receiving following presidential physicals, would put to rest any speculation as to Trump's mental functioning.

In a series of tweets following the publication of the book, the President defended his mental capabilities and described himself as a "very stable genius".

In 2006, while still in Iraq, Jackson was selected as White House physician.

Mr Trump, who declined to release a detailed report on his health while running in 2016 - though his doctor did release a letter then vouching for his good shape - is the oldest person in history to be elected to America's highest office.

"Where past presidents might have spent portions of their day talking about the needs, desires, and points of leverage among various members of Congress, the president and [communications aide Hope] Hicks spent a great deal of time talking about a fixed cast of media personalities, trying to second guess the real agendas and weak spots among cable anchors and producers, and Times and Post reporters", Wolff wrote. "Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. This president works tirelessly for the American people".

GETTY TURNING POINT Donald Trump's first physical exam could be a major event

President Donald Trump's health has been questioned after a few recent instances that raised eyebrows.

"I hope they don't get lost in this".

Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for rosacea. He doesn't smoke or drink alcohol.

The White House announced last month that Trump was due to have a routine physical after some commentators believed he slurred words during a speech on the decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Sanders blamed that on a dry throat.

Trump has called the author Michael Wolff a fraud who made up material for the book, but Wolff said he spent many days months inside the West Wing for his reporting.

Dr. Bandy Lee, a psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine's Law and Psychiatry Division, edited a book that claims there are signs Trump is "unraveling", WBUR reported.
