Trump signs executive order to improve mental health resources for Veterans


The Commander in Chief will get his first medical checkup since taking office. Wolfe says many struggling veterans don't ask for help.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to have a medical exam on Friday, his first since taking office almost a year ago.

If Trump had any patient's apprehension going into his exam - which he'll fly to aboard his Marine One helicopter - he wasn't letting on.

They have also included more detailed examinations of the heart, lungs, vision, cholesterol and blood glucose - but the White House said ahead of the check-up that Mr Trump would not undergo a psychiatric assessment.

"I'm sure their ratings were fantastic; they always are - which is why I think the media will ultimately support Trump in the end, because they're going to say, if Trump doesn't win in three years, they're all out of business", he said.

Iran protests put spotlight on military's vast and shadowy war in Syria
Protests against Iran's government went on for six days ; at least 22 people died and hundreds were arrested. The Islamic State group has declared support for the anti-government protests in Iran .

Earlier this month, the president praised himself as "not smart, but genius. and a very stable genius at that", following the release of a bombshell new book that called into doubt his mental health. Usually, the results buffer their standing as healthy, capable leaders.

Speculation surrounding Mr Trump's mental health has been fuelled, not for the first time, by last week's publication of the book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by journalist and author Michael Wolff.

The president's comments, at once racist and sexist, are just one example to emerge in NBC's report alleging a series of inappropriate, racially-tinged encounters.

Trump has publicised his medical information before.

Trump's 2016 physical listed his weight as 267 pounds, which Dr. Oz described as "slightly overweight". (Ronald Reagan was 69 when he was elected president).

20-Year-Old Florida Man Claims $451M Mega Millions Jackpot
A 20-year-old from Florida says he plans to "have some fun" after being named sole victor of a $451m (£330m) lottery jackpot. His lawyer said his client had "retired" from his job at a company that carried out employment background checks.

In September 2016, during the presidential campaign, Trump released a five-paragraph letter from Dr Harold Bornstein, his longtime physician, in which the gastroenterologist concluded that Trump "is in excellent physical health".

How much of the results he releases after are up to him, with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claiming he will follow in the footsteps of his predecessors by releasing a report to say he is 'fit for duty'.

"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.

Dr. Wells continued: "The President's actual physician- like any other individual's- who has direct knowledge of the complete history, examination and access to the full record is the only person who can determine medical fitness for the office". Spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump "exhibits yeoman-like work every day in this job, whether it be up before dawn and up into the wee hours of the morning every day".

And his diet isn't known to have changed from the high-calorie dishes he has favored in the past: well-done steak with ketchup, meatloaf, hamburgers, vanilla ice cream, salads with blue cheese dressing and chocolate cake.
