Donald Trump's Doctor: President in ‘Very Good Health’

President Donald Trump Dr. Ronny Jackson speaks during the daily White House press briefing at the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House Jan. 16 2018 in Washington

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump, who delights in confounding health experts with his junk food cravings and disinclination to exercise, underwent an annual medical checkup Friday.

"Over the course of approximately four hours, I performed and supervised the evaluation with a panel of 11 different board-certified specialists", said Dr. Sean Conley in a memo for White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. He is not known to exercise beyond his beloved rounds of golf.

Jackson reported that Trump, at 6-foot-3, was slightly overweight at 239 pounds a year ago.

And he says he gets plenty of walking in around the White House complex. 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.

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

Modern-day presidents have undergone regular exams to catch any potential problems but also to assure the public they are fit for office.

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

Jackson said Trump had a ideal score on a cognitive test.

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.

"All my friends who work out all the time, they´re going for knee replacements, hip replacements - they´re a disaster", Trump told The New York Times in 2015. He will advise the president on topics including veterans' issues, the opioid crisis and health issues at the U.S. -Mexico border.

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

In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity and a cognitive assessment was normal.
