WASHINGTON - Donald Trump&39;s scheduled medical exam this week won&39;t include a psychiatric evaluation, the White House said as questions mount over the US president&39;s mental fitness.

Responding to queries on the subject, spokesman Hogan Gidley said simply: "No."

"He&39;s sharp as a tack," Gidley told reporters on board Air Force One.

Trump (71) will be examined at the Walter Reed military hospital in a Washington suburb Friday and the results are set to be made public.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump published a letter by his long-term doctor Harold Bornstein that stated he was in "excellent physical health."

Bornstein had previously written about Trump&39;s health in glowing terms, stating in 2015 he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

Angered by the publication of a bombshell book that raised doubts over his mental faculties, Trump took to Twitter this weekend to describe himself as "a very stable genius" and "like, really smart."
