President Trump’s mental health has been called into question lately due to some of his recent comments about his intelligence but what about his physical health? Well, the President is scheduled to undergo his first physical examination as President on Friday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Many pundits and Trump critics have been commenting on Trump’s mental stability since the release of Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. However, Trump’s tweets are also to blame for some of the recent criticism. The President’s “stable genius” tweet last week really had people questioning if he was mentally fit enough to lead.
When asked on Thursday about how he feels the physical examination will go, Trump predicted that it will go “very well.” “I think it’s going to go very well,” Trump explained with a smirk on his face. “I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t,” he added.
Trump went on to jokingly assert that if his first physical exam as President does not go well, “the stock market will not be happy.” Apparently, Trump thinks if investors think he is too sick to lead, they will being to panic.
Nonetheless, President Trump is 71-years-old. And even though he acts like a child, he is the oldest person ever elected President. However, reports indicate that the physical examination will not include a psychiatric evaluation which comes a disappoint to many who argue that Donald Trump is simply not fit to be President of the United States of America. Do you think Trump’s physical will go well?
