Trump to undergo first medical checkup as president

Trump was unsatisfied and asked again, the officials said.

For the president's part, he isn't anxious about the physical.

Mr Wolff gathered the reporting in the book by spending time with the transition team and at the White House over 18 months with the freedom to record conversations.

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!"

Citing the "reasonable" and "essential" concerns about the president's health, scores of healthcare and mental health professionals are urging the doctor carrying out Donald Trump's medical checkup Friday to also examine his neurological health.

Some of the comments were published in a new book about Trump's first year, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has denounced as "complete fantasy" for portraying her 71-year-old boss as undisciplined and in over his head as president.

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.

"The president's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well". His EKG, chest X-ray, echocardiogram and blood sugar were normal.

Dr Ronny L. Jackson is the physician who will be carrying out Mr Trump's medical exam on Friday.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever sworn into the nation's highest office.

The exam will be conducted by Dr. Ronnie Jackson, a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy who also served as then-President Barack Obama's physician.

The legislation expands the VA's yearly evaluation of mental health and suicide prevention programs to include metrics specific to female veterans. A year after that, while Jackson was still in Iraq, the George W. Bush administration selected him to be a White House physician under Air Force Brigadier General Richard Tubb.
