GETTY FEAR Michael Wolff's'Fire and Fury claims Trump eats fast food to avoid poisoning

Fire and Fury

Wolff's book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, even claims the president scoffs McDonalds cheeseburgers in his White House bed while watching three TV's and yelling down the phone at friends.

Since the start of the 20th century, at least 14 of the 20 presidents prior to Trump suffered from a significant health complication while in office, the full extents of which were kept from the public in some cases, according to another analysis, by Aaron Seth Kesselheim, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School. Jackson will release a brief statement following the physical, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday.

The state of President Ronald Reagan's health was also tightly controlled by the White House, which carefully choreographed media coverage to portray him as robust.

Trump tweeted: "Actually throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart".

RTÉ's Washington Correspondent Brian O'Donovan looks ahead as US President Donald Trump is set to undergo his first medical examination since taking office. He will not undergo a psychiatric exam, the White House said. Assessment of cognitive function is not purely subjective, but objective as well.

"Get me a list of those people", the president said. Earlier information about Trump's health came from his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who famously declared in 2015 that Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". "I consider it work", Trump said.

The same is true of Donald Trump. His EKG, chest X-ray, echocardiogram and blood sugar were normal. The official report from Mr Obama's last check-up in February 2016 includes data on his blood pressure and body mass index, and indicates that his vision, hearing, cardiac health and cholesterol levels were all checked.

"If mental health concerns are raised, the standard of care would result in the examining physician seeking consultation from an experienced psychiatrist who would approach the consultation with objectivity and within the physician-patient confidential relationship", the APA said.

Although he is a keen golfer, Trump is also said "not to believe" in exercise, reports the BBC. In a series of interviews a year ago, Trump showed journalists how he summons a butler to bring him a soda by pressing a red button on his Oval Office desk.

Trump has made no attempt to hide his weakness for unhealthy foods, posting a photo of himself aboard his campaign plane with a bucket of fried chicken, bragging about the chocolate cake at his Mar-a-Lago resort and drinking Diet Coke around the West Wing.

Meanwhile, the president also addressed his latest call with South Korean President Moon Jae-In, who Mr. Trump says, was thankful for the role the USA played in the talks between North Korea and South Korea this week over the North's participation in the Winter Olympics.

Neither measure has advanced in Congress.

The White House announced it would offer reporters the chance to speak with Jackson in the middle of an outside debate over the president's mental fitness.
