An unannounced weekend trip to Walter Reed last November drew scrutiny on Trump's health. The White House said at the time that the president had merely begun "portions of his routine annual physical exam."

According to a forthcoming book by New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt, however, West Wing staffers were told to put Vice President Mike Pence on standby "to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure that would have required him to be anesthetized."

But, as Schmidt noted in response to Trump's Tuesday morning tweet: "Book says nothing about mini-strokes."
