Do Presidents Have To Release Their Medical Records? Trump Knows There's Protocol
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.
