In recent weeks, questions have been raised about Donald Trump's health. With his physical set for next week, the president decided to make a prediction and give a warning in the process.

Trump on his health

As the 2016 presidential election came to a close, questions about the health of both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were raised. As he has done for decades, the former host of "The Apprentice" made his health into a spectacle as the results of his physical were released during an episode of the "Dr. Oz Show." In the year that has followed, many in the media have pointed to the president's unhealthy eating habits and rotund body type as a way to push back against claims from the White House that Trump is in good health.

In the recently released book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," author Michael Wolff claims that many inside the White House are concerned about the president's mental and physical health, with allegations that he eats fast food on an almost daily basis. As reported by C-SPAN on January 11, Trump decided to chime in on the issue with thoughts of his own.

While speaking with advisers at the White House on Thursday, Donald Trump was asked about his physical.

"I think it's going to go very well," Trump predicted. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't," he went on to add. Not stopping there, the president issued a warning that if the results of his exam aren't positive that the economy could take a hit. "It better go well otherwise the stock market will not be happy."

Instant reaction

Following Donald Trump's comment on his health exam, those who oppose the commander in chief wasted no time giving their own opinions.

"If a psyc-eval was included. The market would crash," one tweet read.

"If the physical doesn't go well expects shares in McDonald's and Coca-Cola to plummet," a Twitter user wrote.

"I had no idea he has the stock market up his 'you know where,'" a follow-up tweet stated. "If the stock market fails b/c dt's health does, so be it. I'm a farmer and mechanic, i'll eat and get where i gotta get regardless," yet another tweet noted.

"What the hell- the stock market has performed despite your tweets, actions, and curious words," an additional post read. "Can anyone explain why he sits with his arms crossed at his man-breasts/armpits?

He looks like an 11 year old girl at her first boy-girl dance in the gym," one Twitter user stated. As the backlash continued, the opposition to the president showed no signs of holding back at any point in the near future.
