"While he can say what he wants, thankfully the president cannot change our laws, much less amend the Constitution".

Trump, like all Americans, has the right under federal law to keep health information from public disclosure.

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that will provide transitioning service members and veterans with access to mental health care services up to a year after they have separated from service through the Department of Veterans Affairs, DoD News reported Tuesday.

The normally routine examination coincided with swirling questions about Trump's physical and medical fitness for office.

A new book on Trump's White House by author Michael Wolff, "Fire and Fury", asserts that nearly all of his top staff and advisers believe he is mentally unwell.

On Tuesday, the White House made a point of opening Trump's lengthy immigration meeting with lawmakers to reporters and TV cameras, a rare public look lasting almost an hour at the president conducting a policy gathering. All sitting presidents should be evaluated, though most presidential physical exams have included only cursory evaluations of their mental health.

Will Fischer, an Iraq War veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, said Mr. Trump "should delete the entire second half of his executive order, which moves the VA closer to privatization". In George W. Bush's first exam as president, his doctor said he enjoyed the occasional cigar, drank diet soda and ran 12 miles a week.

He tweeted: "Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for 'peanuts, ' only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars".

The Pentagon also will look for ways to start the transition process for service members earlier during their time in uniform, the official said, though the timelines are not yet clear.

Trump boarded Marine One at the medical facility in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, Friday afternoon after about three hours at the hospital. The White House wouldn't say whether doctors would test the president's cognitive abilities.

The president is undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit.

"In summary, Mr. Trump is in excellent physical health", Dr. Bornstein wrote. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the questions that arose from that incident by saying he was merely parched, and that speculation about his mental stability were "frankly, pretty ridiculous".

Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for rosacea.

"They get out of the military and they have nobody to talk to, nobody to speak to", explained the president.

President Donald Trump says the reviews are in: He puts on a "tremendous" meeting.
