Trump expects his bodily to go effectively Friday

Trump expects his bodily to go effectively Friday

Donald Trump will have his first medical exam as USA president today, after a week during which his mental fitness for the job has come under intense scrutiny.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says a readout of the exam will be made publicly available soon after the exam is done. The terse letter written by Trump's then-physician Harold Bornstein famously culminated in the declaration that Trump "will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". After Jackson last examined Obama, in February 2016, the memo he prepared included the president's height, weight, body mass index, resting heart rate, blood pressure, pulse oximetry and body temperature.

Wolff's book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, even claims the president scoffs McDonalds cheeseburgers in his White House bed while watching three TV's and yelling down the phone at friends.

President Trump on Thursday seemed acutely aware of the intrigue surrounding his upcoming physical exam.

The president is to fly by helicopter Friday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington in Bethesda, Md., for the exam.

Dr Ronny L. Jackson is the physician who will be carrying out Mr Trump's medical exam on Friday. The doctor's 2016 letter stated that Trump's testosterone level, 441.6, was in the normal range, as were his PSA reading for prostate abnormalities and tests of his liver and thyroid.

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

Trump has said he gets most of his exercise playing golf.

Absent such an health assessment, "the American people will not have a clear understanding about the health and well-being of the President", the medical experts write. George W. Bush traded running for mountain biking to preserve his knees.

The Trump administration is turning its focus to mental health for veterans this week. He is also the heaviest president in at least a generation and consumes a diet heavy with Big Macs, Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, fried chicken, pizza, well-done steak and two rounds of dessert.

Jackson, Trump's physician, is a Navy rear admiral who was the emergency medicine doctor for a shock trauma platoon in Taqaddum, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, according to his Navy bio.

Dr Jackson served as physician to Barack Obama while he was in office and now serves as the appointed Physician to the President and Chief White House Physician.
