With questions being raised regarding US President Donald Trump’s mental and physical health after the publication of an explosive book that claims to carry insights into his behavior and habits, Trump is scheduled to undergo a medical examination on Friday, CNN reported on Tuesday.
“Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” — an expose by author and political muckraker Michael Wolff that quotes key Trump aides expressing serious doubt about his fitness for office — hit the shelves last week despite threats of legal action.
The book’s publishers had responded to a cease-and-desist letter by moving forward its release by four days. Trump had lashed out against the author, claiming that he had not authorized access to the White House for Wolff.
Amid other things, the book revealed that the US president prefers to eat McDonald’s and has prohibited the White House staff from touching his stuff out of his fear of being poisoned. The book also raises questions about Trump’s mental stability and his capability to hold the office of president.
