Trump's medical: Why's he having it and what to expect?

13 January 2018

Trump, 71, will undergo a routine checkup at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington, D.C. Later in the day, the president was traveling to Florida for the weekend.

President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday created to give greater access to mental health care for recently-discharged veterans.

People reacted in disbelief after the amount of demonstrably false things Trump has said, which top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has spun as "alternative facts".

Trump responded to the criticism by calling himself a "very stable genius" in a tweet and by allowing cameras to film him negotiating immigration legislation with senators at the White House for 55 minutes on Tuesday.

The physical test will last around two hours and include blood and urine tests, heart checks and even questions about his sleeping habits and s*x life, according to medical experts.

The President is therefore also under no obligation to publish his full medical results, but White House doctor Ronny Jackson is expected to give what the administration has called a "readout".

A new book by author Michael Wolff, "Fire and Fury", asserts that nearly all of Trump's top staff and advisers believe he is mentally unwell.

His remarks come in the wake of a book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" which is highly critical of him and the First Family.

"They get out of the military and have nobody to talk to, nobody to speak to", the president said.

While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty".

"Mr. Trump hereby demands that you immediately cease and desist from any further publication, release or dissemination of the book", the attorney, Charles J. Harder, wrote in a letter obtained by Fox News. He says his administration is going to take a "strong look" at changing those laws. Facing calls for transparency during the 2016 election campaign, the candidate's personal physician put out a statement saying, "Mr Trump has suffered no form of cancer, has never had a hip, knee or shoulder replacement or any other orthopedic surgery". The letter revealed that Trump took a daily aspirin and a low dose of a statin, used to lower cholesterol.

Dr. Lee was a guest on "Midday Live with Dr".

Dayton VA Suicide Prevention Coordinator Karon Wolfe says adding mental health issues into the mix can be even more unsafe.

This Friday, Donald Trump has an unusual appointment on his agenda.

But this round of partisan fantasizing has been propelled into the mainstream, in part by reporters inclined to believe anything about Trump and in part by a president more than happy to play along in the show-bizification of politics.
