White House Doctor Says Trump 'In Very Good Health' After Exam

President Donald Trump, who delights in confounding health experts with his junk food cravings and disinclination to exercise, underwent an annual medical checkup Friday.

President Trump is "in very good health" and expected to remain healthy for "the duration of his Presidency, and beyond", the president's doctor reported Friday following a physical exam that lasted almost four hours and included 11 specialists.

Trump underwent a almost four-hour annual physical test on Friday - his second periodic examination after becoming the US President in January 2017.

Trump, 72, was to be put through a round of medical tests at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, that will determine his weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and other health factors.

The stunning leak of President Donald Trump's private schedules has naturally set off an internal White House search for who's behind the leaks.

The siblings are the children of late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in 2016 after a record breaking 70 years on the throne. The election committee has also not responded to her announcement yet, saying its members would gather on Monday.

But sources told CNN that a year later, President Trump has made only minor changes to his diet and exercise regimen.

According to Jackson a year ago, Trump's secret is genes.

He was said to be in excellent health after last year's four-hour examination, when his personal physician praised his "incredibly good genes". Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

Dr. Conley released no details about what a team of 11 specialists had found in the course of a four-hour examination of Mr. Trump. Jackson said past year he increased Trump's dose of a medicine to control cholesterol, AstraZeneca PLC's Crestor. The nomination ran into trouble early as lawmakers questioned his qualifications to run the government's second-largest department.

Jackson said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete.
