  • Donald Trump completed his first physical exam as
    president on Friday.
  • Dr. Ronny Jackson, who performed the exam at the Walter
    Reed National Military Medical Center, described Trump as being
    in “excellent health.”
  • Jackson is expected to announce the full results of the
    president’s exam on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump underwent his first physical exam as
president on Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical
Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson described the 71-year-old
Trump as being in “excellent health.” Full results of the exam
are expected to be announced on Tuesday.

The sitting president’s routine medical check-up is not usually a
topic that dominates headlines, but speculation about Trump’s
health has intensified in the early days of his second year in
office. That’s due in part to some revealing commentary about his
eating habits, outlined in news stories over the last year — and
more recently in the book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White
House.”

One anecdote in the book said that Trump’s penchant for
McDonald’s fast food is linked to his
“longtime fear of being poisoned.”
Trump’s go-to order was
said to be two Big Macs, two Filet-o-Fish sandwiches, and a large
chocolate shake.

A Washington Post report published last month said
Trump’s main diet on the 2016 campaign trail
consisted of
Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.
