Trump's Annual Physical Set For Friday, No Press Conference Expected

Trump, who is 6-foot-3, weighed 239 pounds at his physical a year ago and Dr. Ronny Jackson, who did the first examination, said Trump should aim to lose 10 to 15 pounds.

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. "Absolutely", Jackson said at the time.

"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.

The examination took "approximately four hours" and did not require any sedation or anesthesia, Conley added.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said before the exam that Trump, 72, hasn't "religiously" followed the diet and exercise guidance he received previous year.

Presidents aren't required to have an annual medical exam or to release any of the results, but Trump's recent predecessors have undergone regular exams and typically released summaries of the findings. He makes no secret of preferring a diet of red meat, fast food and candies.

Jackson's assessment of the President's health came under fire from medical professionals, including from within the White House's medical unit. 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. Trump has admitted that he has not hewn closely to his diet plan. Trump was said to have "incredibly good genes". Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown.

In an interview that aired Friday on Showtime's "The Circus", Clinton suggested President Donald Trump was merely "frustrated" at his inability to push border wall legislation through Congress and was resorting to other means of getting his way.
