The US President, Donald Trump has been confirmed to be “in very good health” and is expected to remain healthy for “the duration of his Presidency, and beyond,” his doctor reported on Friday after a physical exam that lasted nearly four hours and included 11 specialists.
The US White House did not release details of the exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and did not say whether more details would be released, but President Trump was seen by a “panel of 11 different board certified specialists,” Sean P. Conley wrote in a brief memorandum released by the White House.
72-year old Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley reported. Though he has visibly gained weight in recent years, he makes no secret of preferring a diet of red meat, fast food and sweets. He is not known to exercise beyond his beloved rounds of golf and he does not smoke or drink.
Trump’s former physician, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson, became an Internet sensation last year for his public pronouncement that Trump had “incredibly good genes.” Jackson reported last year that Trump, who stands 6-foot-3, was slightly overweight at 239 pounds. Jackson said then that Trump had a perfect score on a cognitive test and “might live to be 200 years old” if he had a more healthful diet.
