Trump to undergo medical check as critics question his mental fitness

Trump to undergo medical check as critics question his mental fitness

Trump, 71, is the oldest first-term president.

The White House also faced a barrage of questions last month after he slurred some words during a speech on national TV.

A statement about the results will be released today, and, at the White House on Tuesday, Dr Jackson will give details on the president's health and take questions.

The White House announced that Trump would undergo a physical December 28.

Veterans like David Frank agree, who served for 4 years including a tour in Iraq.

Trump took the unusual step of threatening legal action to try to suppress publication of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by Michael Wolff.

Trump tweeted: "Actually throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart". He told rally-goers back in 2015 that he wanted to make sure that "when they write purposely negative and disgusting and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money", saying that when he became president news organizations like the New York Times and The Washington Post would "have problems".

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that will provide transitioning service members and veterans with access to mental health care services up to a year after they have separated from service through the Department of Veterans Affairs, DoD News reported Tuesday. Assessment of cognitive function is not purely subjective, but objective as well.

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

As a past president of the American Psychiatric Association, I feel strongly that my fellow psychiatrists, and any psychologists or therapists, should stop speculating publicly about President Trump's mental fitness and stop trying to diagnose possible mental conditions based on their armchair observations. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he said Thursday when asked by a reporter about his expectations for the upcoming doctor's appointment. Typical readings to emerge have included the President's height, weight, body mass index (which indicates whether an individual is normal weight, overweight or obese), resting heart rate and blood pressure. Mattis' statement said, the order allows the veterans, through the VA, to continue receiving, "important mental health care and services they need and deserve".

"It is frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write", Trump said then. In a series of interviews previous year, Trump showed journalists how he summons a butler to bring him a soda by pressing a red button on his Oval Office desk.

President Donald Trump says the reviews are in: He puts on a "tremendous" meeting.

Neither measure has advanced in Congress.

CNN added in its report that attempts had been made to contact multiple former White House physicians to learn what is routinely covered during the exams and what sort of mental health evaluations, if any, are done, but they were all unreachable or declined to comment. And he once said he had a full day of meetings when he was in fact playing golf.

On Tuesday, the White House made a point of opening Trump's lengthy immigration meeting with lawmakers to reporters and TV cameras, a rare public look lasting almost an hour at the president conducting a policy gathering.
