President Donald Trump, is in “very good health,” according to White House doctor Sean Conley, who examined him for four hours with eleven other specialists.
“While we finalize the reports and the recommendations, I am happy to announce that the president of the United States is in very good health and to anticipate that he will continue for the rest of his Presidency, and beyond,” Conley said in a statement.
Today was the second annual routine review to which Trump has been subjected since he arrived at the White House and took place at the Walter Reed National military medical center, located in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside the capital. Conley explained that the president, 72, did not undergo any procedure that required sedation or anesthesia.
Last year’s review indicated that Trump enjoyed “excellent” health even though he was overweight and bordering on the obese category, with a body mass index of 29.9, since he weighed 108.4 kilograms and measured 1.92 meters. The then presidential doctor, Ronny Jackson, who also oversaw the health of former President Barack Obama since 2013 (2009-2017), said he would develop a diet and exercise plan for Trump to lose weight.
“He is more enthusiastic about the diet than the exercise, but we are going to do both,” said the doctor, who indicated that he planned to develop an “low impact, aerobic exercise plan that does not damage his joints”. . Jackson also examined the president’s cognitive health to silence the rumors that a year ago questioned his mental stability and stressed that “his mind is very sharp, it is intact.”
“He is fit to exercise his duty (as president), during the rest of his term and even during the rest of another term if elected,” concluded the doctor.
