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

The White House did not release details of the exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and did not say whether more details would be released.

After Trump's first exam as president, Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, declared Trump to be in "excellent health".

"While the reports and recommendations are being finalized, 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", Conley wrote in a statement.

While observers may have rolled their eyes at Jackson's obsequiousness, Trump loved the performance and soon after nominated Jackson to be VA Secretary.

President Donald Trump will undergo his second physical examination as commander-in-chief, but will do it without Dr. Ronny Jackson, who gave him a clean bill of health before controversy struck the physician a year ago. It was unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. 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.

He didn't undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley said. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout. Last year, everything from the president's cholesterol levels (high) to weight (too high at 239 pounds, or 108 kilograms) was released. 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. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown. Jackson even joked that President Trump "might live to be 200 years old" if he made improvements to his diet. He is not expected to hold a public briefing on Trump's health, the report said.

In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity and a cognitive assessment was normal.
