The Health 202: Mental-health professionals can't agree on evaluating Trump's psyche

Donald Trump defends self after comments says'I am not a racist

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's physician released a summary of his health that included his height, weight (236 pounds), cholesterol (HDL 63, LDL 94, triglycerides 61), blood pressure (116/70), blood sugar (99) and results of liver, thyroid, heart and colon exams.

Perry said she believed presidents should be subject to a raft of tests to establish they are fit to serve.

Whether the exam, which Trump is nearly certainly expected to pass, stops concerns about his fitness for the role of US President remains to be seen.

A routine annual affair for every U.S. president, Trump's medical checkup is being widely reported and has drawn media attention in view of his political opponents raising questions about his health. In the year that has followed, many in the media have pointed to the president's unhealthy eating habits and rotund body type as a way to push back against claims from the White House that Trump is in good health. The APA issued a ruling prohibiting mental-health professionals from commenting on the well-being of a public figure who they have not personally examined.

"The president's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well".

Buchinsky said he wouldn't be surprised if the president also underwent an electrocardiogram and stress test on a treadmill to determine his cardiovascular health.

"It's important for the public to see that these are concerns a lot of people have and understand our reasons and motivations", he said.


"All clinical data indicates that the President is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency", Jackson wrote in his description of President Barack Obama's final physical exam, in 2016.

Some psychiatrists have raised concerns about the president's mental fitness for office, pointing to his unpredictable Twitter feed, among other indicators.

Physical exams for presidents have been a norm since Richard Nixon, according to ABC News, but they aren't required.

One anecdote in the book said that Trump's penchant for McDonald's fast food is linked to his Trump's go-to order was said to be two Big Macs, two Filet-o-Fish sandwiches, and a large chocolate shake.

Not only is President Trump the oldest president to ever take office, The Washington Post recently alleged that Trump is "the heaviest president in at least a generation". The association suggests players walk the golf course instead of renting a golf cart.

"When George W. Bush had my job at a substantially younger age, he submitted himself to a wide battery of tests from a team of doctors, and he released detailed results". Bill Clinton was a runner who installed a jogging track at the White House. He does, however, drink gallons of Diet Coke per week, cans of which he summons with a red button.
