Donald Trump’s scheduled medical exam this week won’t include a psychiatric evaluation, the White House said today as questions mount over the US president’s mental fitness.
Responding to queries on the subject, spokesman Hogan Gidley said simply: “No.”
“He’s sharp as a tack,” Gidley told reporters on board Air Force One.
Trump, 71, will be examined at the Walter Reed military hospital in a Washington suburb Friday and the results are set to be made public. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump published a letter by his long term doctor Harold Bornstein that stated he was in “excellent physical health.”
