White House doctor: Trump in 'excellent health'


The White House will determine what data will be released from the exam, which will take place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland.

"The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Jackson said.

Full results of the exam are expected to be announced on Tuesday.

"The president is in excellent health", Jackson added after the exam was conducted near Washington.

It has been heightened by revelations in the book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, by Michael Wolff.

We'll check "what their lifestyle habits are, which is very important in looking for chronic diseases", she said.

He also released some lab results of the president, including his levels of cholesterol, blood glucose, vitamin D, and prostate-specific antigen, or PSA test.

Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, directs the White House medical unit and has worked as a White House physician since 2006.

Mr Cooper said: "Let me be clear: the people of Haiti have been through more. they've been through more, they've withstood more, they've fought back against more injustice than our president ever has". Dr. Allan Frances, a former chair of the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department at Duke University who helped revise the manual identifying mental illnesses, disagrees that Trump is ill.

Physical exams for presidents have been a norm since Richard Nixon, according to ABC News, but they aren't required. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters Monday that Trump is "sharp as a tack".

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", Trump told reporters on Thursday. At the time, the doctor said Mr. Trump was 6 foot 3 and 236 pounds, which qualifies him as overweight and almost obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

"This president works tirelessly for the American people". The association suggests players walk the golf course instead of renting a golf cart.

But there's no guarantee Jackson will provide a comprehensive report, because undergoing a physical is voluntary for a president and Trump can pick and choose what the public hears. Bill Clinton was a runner who installed a jogging track at the White House.

"When George W. Bush had my job at a substantially younger age, he submitted himself to a wide battery of tests from a team of doctors, and he released detailed results". He is also the heaviest president in at least a generation and consumes a diet heavy with Big Macs, Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, fried chicken, pizza, well-done steak and two rounds of dessert.

That's because Trump is notably fond of fast food and reportedly drinks 12 cans of Diet Coke a day.
