Trump at Walter Reed for annual medical checkup

A White House official said Trump was examined by a team of doctors led by Conley, a Navy officer.

President Trump is in great health according to the results of his latest physical exam.

President Donald Trump on Friday was to undergo his annual physical exam, a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends.

Jackson later was nominated by Trump to run the Department of Veteran Affairs, but the admiral withdrew his name after allegations of misconduct surfaced, including accusations he improperly dispensed medication.

President Donald Trump is in "very good health" and should remain that way for the rest of his time in office, physician Sean Conley said after conducting a roughly four-hour annual exam of the president Friday.

The book alleged that some close to the president questioned his mental capacity, The Hill newspaper reported. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan past year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said. More detail about the physical is likely to come next week. At the first physical of his presidency, which took place past year, he was found to weigh 239lb (108kg) and have a cholesterol level that is slightly higher than recommended. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. Trump will be president for at least two more years, assuming he finishes his first term.

According to Jackson previous year, Trump's secret is genes.

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.

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.
