Trump is 'in excellent health,' White House doctor says

A statement about the results will be released today, and, at the White House on Tuesday, Dr Jackson will give details on the president's health and take questions.

President Donald Trump arrived for his first medical checkup as president at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit.

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

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.

Mr Bornstein had previously written about Mr Trump's health in glowing terms, stating in 2015 he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

"The President is in excellent health", said Jackson after he conducted the first physical exam of the 45th President of the United states.

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

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

"I don't think you could expect to see anything else, unless it's something that makes him look good", Annas said.

Trump told reporters earlier this week that he would be "surprised" if he received poor results from the physical.

Do we know anything about any of President Trump's other physical exams?

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson described the 71-year-old Trump as being in "excellent health".

No, there is no requirement that a person has to have a medical exam of any kind while they serve as president. Previous presidential physicals also mostly excluded mental acuity readings, at least any that were disclosed to the public. Trump has said he takes statin, a drug created to lower cholesterol levels.

The president's medical examination was announced last month after he slurred part of a speech in which he declared the United States recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
