Trump’s tweets provoked jokes and renewed worries, while also sparking heated debates among lawyers and scholars about the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, which allows for the president to be removed from office. Although the STABLE GENIUS Act—an acronym for Standardizing Testing and Accountability Before Large Elections Giving Electors Necessary Information for Unobstructed Selection—is a clear nod to the tweets, Boyle, a fierce Trump critic, emphasized his concerns with the president’s behavior more broadly and a desire to avoid similar situations in the future.

“While it is necessary to take the current president’s concerning behavior seriously and I support legislation to address these ongoing concerns, I believe we must also be proactive and do all we can to ensure a situation like this does not arise again,” Boyle said. “My legislation provides a much needed safeguard to ensure that future presidential candidates meet the basic standards of a proper, uniform medical examination, and that this information is available to the American public before voting.”

Boyle’s legislation would require all presidential nominees to file a report with the Federal Election Commission certifying that he or she underwent a medical exam by the Secretary of the Navy. That report, which would be publicly available, would contain the results of the candidate’s exam.

The White House has confirmed that Trump will undergo his yearly physical at the Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday, though representatives said the exam will not include any tests of his mental fitness. As Politico noted, “that decision concerns physicians and public health experts who say Trump should be assessed the same way as other elderly Americans, particularly given his globe-shaping job and his control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.”
