Trump receives medical exam

The United States President Donald Trump has undergone a medical examination, first since he took office as US president, CNBC reported. The White House has stated that the president is "in excellent health." Results are expected to be released next Tuesday.

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson supervised the procedures. The tests were done at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Now 71 years old, the US commander-in-chief became the oldest individual to become president last January.

A psychiatric exam was not part of the medical check-up. Trump stated last week that his opponents in the domestic mainstream media outlets and the Democratic Party are questioning whether he is capable of performing his tasks, saying they "are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence."
