President in “Excellent Health” White House Physician Says


White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, gave President Trump a clean bill of health after his first physical exam as president on Friday.  “The president’s exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well. The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday,” Jackson said in a statement.

President Trump anticipated a physical review that would go well, saying he’d be surprised if it didn’t.  “It better go well, otherwise the stock market will not be happy,” he joked.  The White House announced that Dr. Jackson would attend the White House Daily Briefing on Tuesday and answer any questions about the president’s exam, an unusual step for White House physicals.  At 71 years-old, Donald Trump is the oldest person elected president in the U.S.
