Trump at Walter Reed for annual medical checkup

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

Trump, 72, was to be put through a round of medical tests at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, that will determine his weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and other health factors.

Adm. Ronny Jackson, Trump's physician past year, said while Trump was "more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part. we're going to do both".

President Donald Trump is "in very good health" and is expected to remain healthy for the duration of his presidency and beyond, his doctor declared on Friday following an annual medical checkup.

Jackson said he would work on getting Trump on a "dedicated, defined exercise program" and that "we can build on that pretty easily".

The book alleged that some close to the president questioned his mental capacity, The Hill newspaper reported.

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 remained unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. It's unclear how much more detail will be released in the coming days.

Trump did not undergo procedures that required anesthesia or sedation.

Dr. Jackson said then that Mr. Trump had a ideal score on a cognitive test and might live to be 200 years old if he had a more healthful diet.

Last year, doctors checked the president's eyes; ears, nose and throat; heart; lungs; gastrointestinal tract; skin; and teeth.

Jackson returned to the White House this month as assistant to the president and chief medical adviser.

Not for Trump the basketball sessions that Barack Obama sweated through in the White House, or the bike rides of George W Bush. Trump has admitted that he has not hewn closely to his diet plan.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas.

A White House spokesman didn't reply to an earlier request for plans on releasing the results of this year's exam. But the doctor named as its author later said Mr Trump had written the letter himself.
