White House physician declares Trump 'in very good health' after exam

Dr. Sean Conley says that over the course of a four-hour medical check-up Friday, he supervised a panel of 11 board-certified specialists in examining Trump.

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

This is the second such examination that Trump has undergone at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The 72-year-old president is a teetotaler and does not smoke, but likes a sedate lifestyle.

"The President received a diet and exercise plan a year ago after his annual physical, but he admits he has not followed it religiously", Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN.




"The President received a diet and exercise plan previous year after his annual physical, but the President admits he has not followed it religiously", he said. It's unclear how much more detail will be released in the coming days.

With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Mr Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. He will advise the president on topics including veterans' issues, the opioid crisis and health issues at the U.S. -Mexico border. Jackson said a year ago he increased Trump's dose of a medicine to control cholesterol, AstraZeneca PLC's Crestor.

"In 2018, the president's physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, delivered a detailed report on Trump's physical and mental health and took multiple questions during a press conference with reporters".

Jackson, who denied the allegations, also later withdrew as the White House chief medical adviser and became a member of the White House medical unit. Doctors checked his eyes, ears, nose and throat, heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, skin, and teeth.

Jackson said Trump had a flawless score on a cognitive test. The exam stretched past four hours.
