White House doctor: President Trump 'is in excellent health'

President Donald Trump is "in excellent health", White House doctor Ronny Jackson said Friday after the president's first full physical exam in office.

In a brief statement, Jackson said, "The President's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well".

The physician, a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy, has served as the presidential doctor for the past three administrations.

Trump's physical will be among the most closely scrutinized of any president in decades, perhaps since Ronald Reagan, who was wounded in a 1981 assassination attempt and also suffered from Alzheimer's disease while still in office, according to his youngest son, Ron Reagan.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's physician released a summary of his health that included his height, weight (236 pounds), cholesterol (HDL 63, LDL 94, triglycerides 61), blood pressure (116/70), blood sugar (99) and results of liver, thyroid, heart and colon exams.

Last October, Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is a member of the president's Republican Party, told reporters that Trump's behavior had raised issues about his "leadership, and just his stability, and the lack of desire to be competent on issues and understand".

No, the exam will not evaluate Trump's mental health.


Usually going for a medical check-up isn't a big deal, unless of course you're the President of the United States of America.

Do presidents have to have a physical while they are in office?

The president's doctor will no doubt welcome these facts but is likely to be quite concerned about his patient's eating habits.

Presidents are not required to undergo medical exams or tests of their physical or mental fitness for the job.

In 2015, his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, declared that if Trump should be elected president, he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

He also said Trump took Crestor, a cholesterol lowering statin; a low dose of aspirin to prevent heart attacks; antibiotics to treat skin rosacea; and Propecia for baldness.

He told them that he expects it to go well and that he would be surprised if it did not.
