Trump in 'excellent health,' doctor says after medical exam

Trump in 'excellent health,' doctor says after medical exam

So will Trump's physician follow that guidance Friday and check for early signs of dementia?

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The fairly routine exam for previous presidents has taken on outsized importance in the age of Trump.

After an emergency session to discuss Mr Trump's remarks, a group of 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the USA administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour". It gained even more traction when Michael Wolff claimed that everyone in the White House questions the president's "mental fitness".

"I don't think you could expect to see anything else, unless it's something that makes him look good", Annas said. He has been impulsive, serially dishonest and quick to lash out at perceived slights going back decades further.

He said the president's pattern of behaviour has been "disturbing and it's worrisome and it really needs attention". "It's been markedly getting worse".

"He needs to be screened for diabetes absolutely", she said. "Psychiatrists are medical doctors; evaluating mental illness is no less thorough than diagnosing diabetes or heart disease".

Trump's physical exam took place at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center by Dr. Ronny Jackson, who has served as White House doctor since 2013 and carried out two of President Barack Obama's medical exams. And while the White House would not respond to queries about a cognitive impairment assessment, spokesman Hogan Gidley had a one-word answer to whether Trump would get a psychiatric evaluation: "No".

When President Obama underwent a physical, Jackson released the results with Obama's consent. George W. Bush rode mountain bikes. spent each morning in the gym and played the occasional game of basketball.

"Trump's appetite seems to know no bounds when it comes to McDonald's, with a dinner order consisting of two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted", the excerpt stated.

Dr Jackson will issue a public statement after the exam. We're especially interested in his cholesterol count. About a week later, his personal physician released a four-paragraph letter saying that the candidate was in flawless health.

Dr. Tochi Iroku-Malize, chair for family medicine at Northwell Health in NY, said the main components of a physical involve the basics of getting a patient's height, weight, body mass index, and blood pressure, as well as listening to the lungs and heart.
