DOCTOR: Trump In ‘Very Good Health’ For Presidency ‘And Beyond’

President Donald Trump's annual physical is set for Friday, when the American public will see if he followed the doctor's orders from previous year.

Trump was seen by a "panel of 11 different board certified specialists", Dr. Sean P. Conley wrote in a brief memo released by the White House. The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical.

President Donald Trump, who delights in confounding health experts with his junk food cravings and disinclination to exercise, is "in very good health", his doctor declared following an annual medical checkup.

Trump did not undergo procedures that required anesthesia or sedation.


Mr. Trump had his second annual physical at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Friday, after the now-infamous Dr. Ronny Jackson gave him a strict regimen to follow past year.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan previous year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", said White House spokesman Hogan Gidley.

Trump's then chief physician, Ronny Jackson - who has since run into trouble over alleged ethical misconduct - also held an unusually detailed press conference in which he declared Trump to be in "excellent health".

Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical. Trump said a year ago he takes a statin drug to lower his cholesterol. Conley noted that the final results of Trump's 2019 physical exam have not yet been fully processed.


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.

President Trump is in "very good health" according to his doctor.

According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson previous year.
