President Trump had his annual medical exam Friday.
President Trump spent more than four hours at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a checkup supervised by Dr. Sean P. Conley, his physician, and involving a panel of 11 specialists.
“I am happy to announce 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,” Dr. Conley wrote afterward.
He did not go into detail except to say President Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia.
He said reports and recommendations from the exam are still being finalized.
His doctor then said the President was in “excellent health” but would do well to drop 10 to 15 pounds and shift to a low-fat, low-carb diet and take up a more defined exercise routine.
One of The Big Q’s Friday was how well President Trump heeded that advice.
President Trump does not drink alcohol or smoke, he is not a fan of the gym. His primary form of exercise is golf. And he says he gets plenty of walking in around the White House complex.
President Trump loves fast food. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, President Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza.
President Trump has incredibly good genes, and it is the way God made him.
Doctors checked the President’s eyes; ears, nose and throat; heart; lungs; gastrointestinal tract; skin; and teeth. Neurological, cognitive and stress tests were also performed. The exam stretched past 4 hours.
Making and Keeping America Great!
