Mr. Trump had his second annual physical at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Friday, after the now-infamous Dr. Ronny Jackson gave him a strict regimen to follow past year.

Last January, Jackson said Trump's health was "excellent" compared to other 71-year-old American men in health results.

It's reckoning time: President Donald Trump had his annual medical exam Friday, a year after his doctor advised him to up the exercise and cut the calories.

While observers may have rolled their eyes at Jackson's obsequiousness, Trump loved the performance and soon after nominated Jackson to be VA Secretary.

The president's health has attracted attention before.

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.

Trump, 72, "did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia", said Conley, who is the physician to the president and holds the rank of commander in the U.S. Navy.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan a year ago after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", said White House spokesman Hogan Gidley. Last year, everything from the president's cholesterol levels (high) to weight (too high at 239 pounds, or 108 kilograms) was released.

Not for Trump the basketball sessions that Barack Obama sweated through in the White House, or the bike rides of George W Bush. "Incredibly good genes", he said. But it is a curious inclusion for a president whose past doctors seemed to have felt compelled - or in Bornstein's case, claims he actually was compelled (he says Trump literally dictated the letter) - to paint as optimistic a picture of Trump's health as possible.

The president rather infamously ordered burgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King, fries, pizza and some salads for the champion Clemson Tigers football team when the visited the White House last month. Last year's exam lasted more than four hours.
