  • Trump's Annual Physical Set For Friday, No Press Conference Expected

President Donald Trump has arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his annual medical checkup.

Trump, who is 6-foot-3, weighed 239 pounds at his physical past year and Dr. Ronny Jackson, who did the first examination, said Trump should aim to lose 10 to 15 pounds.

At the time, Trump faced questions about his mental fitness after the book Fire and Fury was released.

"While the reports and recommendations are being finalised, I am happy to announce that the President of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond", the memo from Conley states. Things can happen that all the medical tests in the world could never see coming, and they're much more likely to happen when you are in your 70s. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

Last year's examination revealed that President Trump has a common form of heart disease, as well as high cholesterol.

Trump, however, has said that he walks a lot in the White House complex.




Presidents aren't required to have an annual medical exam or to release any of the results, but Trump's recent predecessors have undergone regular exams and typically released summaries of the findings.

The book alleged that some close to the president questioned his mental capacity, The Hill newspaper reported.

Aides said he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

The president has considered golfing his exercise-though he navigates the course in a cart-but has not played for more than two months due to the government shutdown.

Dr. Jackson said then that Mr. Trump had a flawless score on a cognitive test and might live to be 200 years old if he had a more healthful diet.
