Trump physical: President 'in very good health'

Trump physical: President 'in very good health'

Trump spent about four hours at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland on Friday - tweeting twice during the visit - and didn't answer questions from reporters when he returned to the White House.

Then-presidential physician Ronny Jackson a year ago released results from Trump's medical exam showing he was borderline obese - weighing 239 pounds at 6 feet, 3 inches tall - but declared the president to be "fit for duty" and in "excellent health".

Trump's Friday physical will likely be overseen by Dr Sean Conley, who succeeded Jackson as the President's personal physician.

Jackson later was nominated by Trump to run the Department of Veteran Affairs, but the admiral withdrew his name after allegations of misconduct surfaced, including accusations he improperly dispensed medication. Conley is expected to stick to the more traditional medium of writing up the physical results in a brief document.

Conley adds that the 72-year-old president did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia. He also happened to put Trump exactly one pound shy of being considered "obese" and said Trump didn't have heart disease even though the data suggested he might.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan previous year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Trump's hearing was not tested, The exam stretched past four hours. But the doctor named as its author later said Mr Trump had written the letter himself. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown. But the president was directed to try to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg) by eating better and starting to exercise. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza.

Jackson previous year concluded that Trump was in "excellent health" despite his physical exam that time showing him borderline obese and his "bad cholesterol" levels rising.
