Trump to have medical exam amid questions about mental fitness


President Trump will get his first physical Friday since taking office, a normally routine event that this time comes as questions have been raised about his mental fitness. Critics questioned Trump’s psyche this month following a tweet in which he said he has a bigger nuclear button than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The publication of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury, in which anonymous Trump acquaintances questioned the president’s stability, furthered the debate. But psychiatric exams are not part of presidential physicals, and Trump said in a recent tweet he remains a “very stable genius.” Now 71, Trump is the oldest president ever at the time of taking office.
