Donald Trump in 'Excellent Health' Confirms Doctor Following Medical Examination

The Prez showed up to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda Friday for his first physical since taking office. But beware a poor cholesterol reading.

Jackson will take questions from reporters on the president's health on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. As a result, Trump isn't required to share any medical information with the public.

"I think it's going to go very well", Trump said.

"Trump is older than all previous presidents when they first took office", according to The Post's report. But for the past several decades, all presidents have.

The physical exam President Donald Trump will undergo Friday doesn't include a mental evaluation - but if you heed the mental health community, you'll stop trying to diagnose the president from a distance. The book also claimed the president prefers to eat at McDonald's when traveling, for fear of being poisoned elsewhere.

But there's no guarantee Jackson will provide a comprehensive report, because undergoing a physical is voluntary for a president and Trump can pick and choose what the public hears.

In the run-up to the exam, the president rebutted questions about his mental health by tweeting that he "would qualify as not smart, but genius. and a very stable genius at that!"

Past presidential examinations have included vitals such as height, weight, body mass index, resting heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation in the blood.

The letter declared him in excellent health and listed his height as 6ft 3ins. Past presidents have been largely forthcoming with their medical records, including some embarrassing details like when President Bill Clinton's doctor revealed he had hemorrhoids.

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.

The White House physician pronounced Donald Trump to be in "excellent health" after Trump had his first medical exam as U.S. president on Friday, capping off a week in which his mental fitness for the job has come under intense scrutiny.

However, for people concerned about the president's cognitive health, a physical doesn't focus much on neurological status.

Trump likes fast food, too, along with well-done steaks, chocolate cake and double scoops of vanilla ice cream. He doesn't smoke or drink alcohol.

The President has denied using the derogatory term, but a Democrat present at the gathering said it was the "exact word used by the President, not just once but repeatedly".

The book has been dismissed as "tabloid trash" by the White House. Because the health information is considered private under federal law, the President himself must sign off on its release.

Past physicals have also provided a glimpse into the president's habits.
