Trump threatens that his upcoming physical exam 'better go well'

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.

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

There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health, said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center.

President Barack Obama walks with his physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, second from right, after visiting with troops at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on November 29, 2016.

Citing Medicare guidelines for patients over 66 years of age, the experts say (pdf) Jackson "should include an evaluation of the 71-year-old president's neurological health, including cognitive and mental health functions". At the White House on Tuesday, Jackson will give details on Trump's health and take questions.

A career intelligence analyst who is an expert in hostage policy stood before President Donald Trump in the Oval Office last fall to brief him on the impending release of a family long held in Pakistan under uncertain circumstances.

In recent weeks, questions have been raised about Donald Trump's health.

"I think it's going to go very well", Trump said. Some were recently published in a new book about his first year, which Sanders denounced as "complete fantasy" for its portrayal of Trump as undisciplined, childlike and in over his head. But ultimately Trump can decide what information to release, if any at all, because of federal health privacy laws. A year earlier, Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

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

"We call them soldiers but they're still people too", said Frank.

The president loves fast food, well-done steaks with ketchup, chocolate cake, ice cream and is said to drink 12 Diet Cokes a day.

In 2006, while still in Iraq, Jackson was selected as White House physician.
