Trump 'In Very Good Health' Following Annual Physical

President Donald Trump has arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his annual medical checkup.

After Trump's first exam as president, Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, declared Trump to be in "excellent health".

President Trump's health is "very good", according to White House physician Dr. Sean Conley. Jackson set a goal for Trump to lose 10 to 15 pounds within a year.

President Donald Trump's annual physical is set for Friday, when the American public will see if he followed the doctor's orders from a year ago.

Jackson's assessment of the President's health came under fire from medical professionals, including from within the White House's medical unit. It was unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. It's unclear how much more detail will be released in the coming days.

In an interview that aired Friday on Showtime's "The Circus", Clinton suggested President Donald Trump was merely "frustrated" at his inability to push border wall legislation through Congress and was resorting to other means of getting his way.

Trump loves the more sedate game of golf, but rides a cart between holes and has said that anything more strenuous is actually bad for your health. Jackson said previous year he increased Trump's dose of a medicine to control cholesterol, AstraZeneca PLC's Crestor.

The president made no comment to reporters while leaving the hospital or returning to the White House.

"He is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", Jackson, who created a weight loss plan for Trump, said at the time.

Are there a few things he could do to make himself a little healthier with the diet and exercise?

When the Clemson University football team visited the White House last month, Trump hosted them with a spread of burgers, chicken nuggets and fries from a variety of fast food chains.

According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson past year.
