Physician: President Trump in 'Very Good Health' Following Annual Exam

Trump to receive 2nd physical as president after last year's controversy

Trump to receive 2nd physical as president after last year's controversy

President Donald Trump waves to reporters as he arrives at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his annual physical in Bethesda, Md., Feb. 8, 2019. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy. The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical.

Trump, 72, has visibly gained weight in recent years.

Mr Trump's body mass index (BMI) indicates he is overweight but not obese.

The physical, his second as President of the United States, was conducted at Walter Reed hospital on Friday afternoon.

One of the big questions Friday was how well Trump heeded that advice. He does not smoke or drink. His primary form of exercise is golf.

Trump has described his chief exercise as walking around the White House compound and standing up at public events.

As for his diet, Trump's love of fast food remains.

Nantes demand Cardiff pay the £15m transfer fee for Emiliano Sala
On January 21, Sala was travelling from Nantes to Wales with pilot David Ibbotson , but the aircraft lost contact near Guernsey. The 28-year-old was on his way back to Cardiff from Nantes after saying his goodbyes to his old team-mates in France.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas. He was seen eating steak, French fries and shrimp at his Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and apparently ordered steak to be delivered to him at the White House.

The exam isn't mandatory, but modern-day officeholders have them regularly and release a doctor's report to assure the public that they are fit for office.

He also serves as the President's personal physician. Trump was said to have "incredibly good genes".

Conley replaced Jackson as the presidential physician.

Jackson withdrew his name from consideration for the post in April amid accusations of ethical misconduct, including that he recklessly prescribed drugs and wrecked a government vehicle.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says "there's no national emergency" at the U.S. -Mexico Border. At the first physical of his presidency, which took place previous year, he was found to weigh 239lb (108kg) and have a cholesterol level that is slightly higher than recommended. Neurological, cognitive and stress tests were also performed.
