Trump expects medical exam to go well Friday

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters the exam will be conducted by presidential physician Ronny Jackson. Mr Trump never released his during the save for a letter from his doctor saying he was in good health.

Citing Medicare guidelines for patients over 66 years of age, the experts say (pdf) Jackson "should include an evaluation of the 71-year-old president's neurological health, including cognitive and mental health functions". "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he said.

Answering questions from reporters after an event on prison reform at the White House, Trump said with a smile, "It better go well, otherwise the stock market will not be happy".

Representative Brendan Boyle is the bill's sponsor and said in a statement that "before voting for the highest office in the land, Americans have a right to know whether an individual has the physical and mental fitness to serve as President".

The letter put Trump's blood pressure and cholesterol measurements in the healthy range, though Trump uses a cholesterol-lowering statin medication.

According to the recently published book Fire and Fury, by author Michael Wolff, the listing of Mr Trump as 6ft 3ins in 2016 was done to avoid him "having a body mass index that would label him as obese".

Unlike previous presidents, Trump does not run or cycle, preferring instead to get his exercise on the golf course. Trump drives a cart from hole to hole. George W. Bush traded running for mountain biking to preserve his knees.

Trump likes fast food, too, along with well-done steaks, chocolate cake and double scoops of vanilla ice cream. In their recent book, "Let Trump Be Trump", former top campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie described the four major food groups on Trump's campaign plane as "McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke". He is also the heaviest president in at least a generation and consumes a diet heavy with Big Macs, Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, fried chicken, pizza, well-done steak and two rounds of dessert. He also provided care for Obama and became a White House physician in 2006.

Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy, holds the title of physician to the president.
