'Armchair' psychiatry in the media should end, medical group says

'Armchair' psychiatry in the media should end, medical group says

But what has been a fairly routine exam for previous officeholders has taken on outsized importance in the age of Trump, given the debate about his fitness for office that intensified following publication of an insider's account of Trump's first year as president.

And what information is disclosed will be up to Trump, since federal health privacy laws cover the president.

"Listen, my view of the President - I find him to be engaging, gracious, you know, pretty amusing, and I don't have a question he's fit for office", Sen.

The White House has been pushing back forcefully against a new supposed tell-all book - Michael Wolff´s "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - which was rushed into bookstores after the Trump administration failed to suppress it.

Friday's exam will not include a psychiatric evaluation of Trump, who boasted recently of being a "very stable genius".

Amid other things, the book revealed that the United States president prefers to eat McDonalds and has prohibited the White House staff from touching his stuff out of his fear of being poisoned.

U.S. media are playing down expectations the medical will silence the debate over the president's mental health. Both veterans said coming home brought challenges.

EurAsia Cup: Team Europe stars call for more match play tournaments
Paul Dunne will have his first taste of playing for Europe this weekend ahead of a possible Ryder Cup debut in September. I've never questioned the captain's decision in any team event I've played in.

Trump's criticism of libel laws followed an earlier tweet Wednesday, in which he attacked the courts, another check on his authority, for a ruling that went against his decision to end the DACA program.

A reporter asked Trump on Thursday how he thought Friday's physical would go.

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

Wolff's book release coincided with reports of an unofficial Yale psychiatrist's diagnosis of the president, adding to the talk of Trump's mental health. Bob Corker has expressed concerns about "his leadership, and just his stability, and the lack of desire to be competent on issues and understand and nothing has changed". The White House press secretary said the idea he was mentally unfit for the job was "disgraceful and laughable". The letter revealed that Trump took a daily aspirin and a low dose of statin, a drug used to lower cholesterol.

"I hope they don't get lost in this". Since then, he has presided over a booming economy, obliterated ISIS, cut taxes and regulations, reduced unemployment, boosted the stock market, and sent consumer confidence to a 17-year high. Clinton allowed reporters to question his doctor after the exam; Obama and Bush released written summaries. Jackson has been a physician to the president for three consecutive administrations, Sanders said. He had previously worked in the White House medical office treating Cabinet members and senior staff since 2006.

Jackson will compile the results of the examination over the weekend and join Sanders in the briefing room on Tuesday to give a detailed report and answer questions, she said.

Trump has made no attempt to hide his weakness for unhealthy foods, posting a photo of himself aboard his campaign plane with a bucket of fried chicken, bragging about the chocolate cake at his Mar-a-Lago resort and drinking Diet Coke around the West Wing.
