It remains unclear whether doctors performed any mental acuity, cognitive or neurological tests during the president’s physical exam. Questions about his mental health intensified this month after the publication of a book in which his closest advisers are said to have questioned his mental abilities. That prompted Mr. Trump to insist that he is a “stable genius.”
It is also unclear whether Mr. Trump had tests common for men of his age, such as a treadmill stress test to detect heart problems.
In December 2015, as a presidential candidate, Mr. Trump posted on Twitter that his medical report would “show perfection.” About a week later, his personal physician released a four-paragraph letter saying that the candidate was in perfect health.
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” the physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, concluded in the letter.
