Trump at Walter Reed for annual medical checkup

09 February 2019

President Trump has not followed his doctor's exercise and diet plan to the letter, the White House said before his annual medical check-up today.

President Donald Trump has arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his annual medical checkup.

President Donald Trump will undergo his second physical examination as commander-in-chief, but will do it without Dr. Ronny Jackson, who gave him a clean bill of health before controversy struck the physician past year.

Trump loves the more sedate game of golf, but rides a cart between holes and has said that anything more strenuous is actually bad for your health. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

Trump was declared to be in "excellent health" in January 2018 after a battery of tests on his heart, lungs, gastrointestinal system and other areas. But the president was directed to try to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg) by eating better and starting to exercise.

Dressed in a long dark overcoat and his signature red tie, Trump gave a thumb's up, but did not respond to reporters' questions about how he was feeling.

Variety previously reported that Grande wouldn't perform due to a disagreement with producers over which songs would be featured. This year's ceremony will see performances from Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Diana Ross with nominations led by Kendrick Lamar.

CNN cited another source as saying that the President still orders fast food to be delivered to the White House and enjoys well done red meat dinners.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan..."

At last year's physical, Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical.

Last year, the public learned details about Trump's height, weight, heart rate, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Adm. Ronny Jackson, Trump's physician a year ago, said while Trump was "more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part. we're going to do both".

Trump daily takes a 10 mg dose of the drug Crestor to lower cholesterol, 81 mg of aspirin for cardiac health, and 1 mg of the drug Propecia for prevention of male pattern hair loss.
