Donald Trump’s medical evaluation will shed light on the president’s mental health as well

President Donald Trump will undergo a medical check-up Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington DC

According to a Telegraph report, the medical examination aims to curb speculation that Trump is mentally incapacitated for the presidency.

Trump will be examined by the same doctor who performed the medical test of former President Barack Obama.

And according to the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, those records will be released by the doctor after the control -up.

The test will last approximately two hours and will consist of urine and blood tests, heart tests. He will also investigate Trump's sleep and sex life habits, as expressed by medical experts.

Although doubts about Trump's mental stability have existed since he entered the White House, they have gained strength with the appearance of journalist Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside Trump White House."

According to another Telegraph report, the book states that numerous Trump advisors believed that the president was "unable to function in his work."

According to the book, Trump has a habit of repeating his stories word by word in 10-minute intervals, and often does not recognize his old friends.

Responding to these assertions at a White House press conference, Sanders said the doubts regarding the president were "shameful and ridiculous."

Previously he described the book as a "tabloid fiction of poor quality".

Trump's mental health problem was once again the center of attention when a professor of psychiatry at Yale University, Dr. Bandy X. Lee, questioned the mental health of the president.

According to reports, Lee was summoned by lawmakers to Capitol Hill in December 2017 to summarize his work on Trump's mental health. According to reports, Lee said in an interview that he warned members of Congress saying: "He [Donald Trump] is going to crumble, and we are seeing the signs."

The debate over whether Trump is mentally fit to serve as president resurfaced after he tweeted last week, saying he had a nuclear button that was "much bigger" and "more powerful" than the nuclear button of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Lee published an October 2017 book titled "The Dangerous Donald Trump Case," which consisted of testimonials from psychiatrists who analyzed Trump's mental health.

"We believe that the avalanche of tweeting is an indication that it is falling apart due to stress, Trump will get worse and it will become more difficult, uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency," Lee reportedly stated.

However, Trump's mental health is not the only aspect under scrutiny prior to his medical examination. The results of the test are also expected to publicize Trump's rampaging speech although he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December last year.

It was seen that Trump was struggling with the last sentences of his speech. When the speech closed at the 45 minute mark, his speech became more dragged.

The incident was greeted with great joy on Twitter, where many ridiculed Trump for his slurry speech by using the hashtag #DentureDonald.

The next day, Sanders, after finishing a press conference, returned to the podium to answer questions about Trump's health, where he described such questions as "ridiculous" in nature.

He reportedly said "The president's throat was dry, nothing more than that."

After that, he reported that Trump will undergo a scheduled physical examination, early in 2018, whose results would be disclosed by the doctor.

"He [Donald Trump] has a physical scheduled for the first part of next year, the complete physical examination that most presidents go through," Sanders said.
