President Trump is set to undergo the first medical exam since his inauguration. Today’s physical, at the Walter Reed Medical Center outside Washington, won’t include a mental health screening—even though Medicare recipients over 65 are routinely screened during physicals for cognitive function and possible safety risks. Trump is 71 years old. He recently boasted of being a “very stable genius” amid widespread reports over his declining mental health.
