President Donald Trump signed an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense to come up with a plan to offer more extensive mental healthcare options to recent veterans, according to the Washington Post.
He walked out of the hospital Friday afternoon.
A White House spokesman did not respond to questions from CNBC about what law Trump might actually want to change.
He said: "Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace, and do not represent American values or American fairness".
Some of the comments were published in a new book about Trump's first year, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by Michael Wolff, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has denounced as "complete fantasy" for portraying her 71-year-old boss as undisciplined and in over his head as president.
Trump is to be examined by the same doctor as his predecessor Barack Obama and a summary of the results will be made public. Smith's stance is a rarity on Fox News which has become a mostly political safe space for the president and his White House.
Trump's personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, in December 2015 had issued a letter about the then-presidential candidate's health.
"A lot of focus on the veterans", said Trump. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he said, adding, "It better go well". A summary said Mr Obama's "overall health remains excellent". He says no cost should be spared when it comes to mental health. Apart from golf, the president appears to engage in little exercise. That dinner contains 2,430 calories.
The book states that on the campaign plane "there were four major food groups: McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke".
"We call them soldiers but they're still people too", said Frank.
Trump's examination will not include a psychiatric exam, a White House spokesperson said this week. Wolff told NBC News that Trump has had an increasing tendency to repeat the same stories within a short amount of time. The White House has been quick to dismiss allegations about the POTUS' mental suitability for the presidency, calling them "disgraceful". The people who have raised warnings about the president's emotional stability, mental acuity or age-related illnesses are upset that he won.
