Trump to undergo second physical exam Friday

Share

"Over the course of approximately four hours, I performed and supervised the evaluation with a panel of 11 different board-certified specialists".

The results come after Trump underwent his second physical exam while in office and will likely come under intense scrutiny. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

Trump will be at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington later Friday for the physical exam.

"The President is very grateful for the outstanding care he received today and he wants to thank all the doctors, nurses, enlisted and civilian staff who participated", he said.

"The President received a diet and exercise plan past year after his annual physical, but the President admits he has not followed it religiously", he said. He said reports and recommendations stemming from the exam were still being finalized.

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

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

Trump has reportedly made only slight modifications to his diet.

The 45th president's diet, reportedly involving legendary amounts of Coke and red meat, also seems to defy most doctors' orders. A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese.

The president rather infamously ordered burgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King, fries, pizza and some salads for the champion Clemson Tigers football team when the visited the White House last month.
