Trump's Annual Physical Set For Friday, No Press Conference Expected

Four current and former White House Medical Unit staff members told CNN they were ashamed of Jackson's rosy assessment of Trump's health despite the publicly released data clearly showing a different picture.

Last year's physical drew incredulous reactions, as Jackson told assembled reporters in the press briefing room that Trump was in excellent health, despite facts in direct contradiction to that statement, such as Trump's borderline obesity.

This year's exam will be overseen by Sean Conley, a Navy veteran and doctor of osteopathic medicine who's now president's physician.

At the time, Trump faced questions about his mental fitness after the book Fire and Fury was released.

President Donald Trump's physician says the president is "in very good health" and is likely to remain so for the duration of his presidency and beyond. Last year, everything from the president's cholesterol levels (high) to weight (too high at 239 pounds, or 108 kilograms) was released.

Houston area: Three measles cases confirmed in NW Harris County
The United States outbreaks, which are defined as 3 or more cases, are in New York State, New York City and Washington State. The measles vaccine is reported to be very effective; 97 percent of those who receive both vaccinations are immune.

Trump did not undergo procedures that required anesthesia or sedation. The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical. But the doctor named as its author later said Mr Trump had written the letter himself.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan previous year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said.

The Washington Post's Philip Bump first coined that term back when Harold Bornstein was issuing completely unserious reviews of the then-presidential candidate's health. 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.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas.

It's time for President Donald Trump's annual medical checkup.
