Trump took the unusual step of threatening legal action to try to suppress publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, by Michael Wolff.

Trump, who has been openly exasperated with the coverage, told reporters on Thursday he expected his exam would go well.

The medical checkup at Walter Reed Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, will be the first for Trump since he took office almost a year ago.

Trump's first physical exam as commander in chief will take place Friday.

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

The White House said a report on the exam will be made public. The doctor's 2016 letter stated that Trump's testosterone level, 441.6, was in the normal range, as were his PSA reading for prostate abnormalities and tests of his liver and thyroid.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office.

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". A year after that, while Jackson was still in Iraq, the George W. Bush administration selected him to be a White House physician under Air Force Brigadier General Richard Tubb.
