Trump receives physical checkup as president

Dr. Ronny Jackson says in a statement released by the White House that Trump's physical Friday "went exceptionally well".

Trump's motorcade pulled into the medical facility in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, early Friday afternoon.

Do we know anything about any of President Trump's other physical exams? Mr Trump took to Twitter to describe himself as "a very stable genius" and "like, really smart".

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.

Those questions will likely be answered by next week, when the White House says the results of the exam will be released.

No, the exam will not evaluate Trump's mental health. Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, though they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors.

Presidents are not required to undergo medical exams or tests of their physical or mental fitness for the job. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he went on to add.

Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for rosacea.

Thank you, Donald Trump, for passing a tax bill that will raise the deficit so that it will never be paid off even in our children's lives and will make your rich friends and you even richer. "Any president's mental health is inextricably tied to our health as a society, and, in this case, Trump's mental state poses a serious danger that we must be willing to discuss and address".

Although he is a keen golfer, Trump is also said "not to believe" in exercise, reports the BBC. He seems to get little exercise beyond swinging a golf club, as he spends most of his time on the course traveling in an electric cart. George W. Bush traded running for mountain biking to preserve his knees. The White House has called it "complete fantasy". But already his diet has been widely discussed, including his proclivity for fast food, well-done steak with ketchup and diet cola. He reportedly downs 12 Diet Cokes a day.

"Let Trump be Trump" was co-written by former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and claims dinner could be "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted (milkshake)".

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, on January 11, 2018. He also provided care for Obama and became a White House physician in 2006.

Thursday, a group of more than 70 psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health professionals sent a letter to Trump's physician imploring him to include an evaluation of the president's neurological health in Friday's checkup.
