Trump at Walter Reed for annual medical checkup

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

Trump was in for some poking and prodding as doctors assess his health during his second annual medical checkup as president.

Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley reported.

Almost a dozen White House officials and sources close to Trump said he is reluctant to change his eating habits and has not set foot in the White House fitness room, calling exercise a "waste of the energy".

The president spent the day at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, where he was examined by his physician and 11 other board certified specialists for a total of four hours. The Trump administration also submitted his name to increase his naval rank from rear admiral to two-star admiral. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical.

Mr. Trump loves fast food and had ordered burgers, french fries and pizza when he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House last month.

Korean boy band Bangtan Sonyeondan ( BTS ) will be appearing as one of the presenters at the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday. Their competition in the category includes singer-songwriter Mitski and her album Be The Cowboy , and art rock musician St.


And past year, Dr Ronny Jackson said the president had "incredible genes" and it was not a matter of concern that he only slept for four or five hours a night because this was "just his nature".

"He is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", Jackson, who created a weight loss plan for Trump, said at the time.

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. Jackson, who is still under investigation, will also travel and work closely with White House staff.

Last year's examination revealed that President Trump has a common form of heart disease, as well as high cholesterol. In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity. Jackson set a goal for Trump to lose 10 to 15 pounds within a year.
