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

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

"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 afterward. Conley conducted this year's examination on Mr. Trump, which took place "over the course of approximately four hours".

It's reckoning time: President Donald Trump had his annual medical exam Friday, a year after his doctor advised him to up the exercise and cut the calories. Conley is expected to stick to the more traditional medium of writing up the physical results in a brief document.

Dressed in a long dark overcoat, Trump gave a thumb's up, but did not respond to reporters' questions about how he was feeling. He is not known to exercise beyond his beloved rounds of golf.

Trump, 72, doesn't drink alcohol or smoke, but he's not a big fan of the gym either. 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.

Jackson recommended that Trump do more dieting and exercise.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas. But, overall, he has very, very good health.

According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson past year.

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.

Trump recently promoted Jackson to be an assistant to the president and chief medical adviser.

While observers may have rolled their eyes at Jackson's obsequiousness, Trump loved the performance and soon after nominated Jackson to be VA Secretary. Neurological, cognitive and stress tests were also performed.
