Following his first physical exam since taking office, the White House physician pronounced President Donald Trump to be in “excellent health.”
Trump spent around three hours at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Friday, leading White House doctor Ronny Jackson to say the exam went “exceptionally well.”
“The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well,” Johnson said in a statement provided by the White House. “The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday.”
The short statement following the exam comes as the president's health continues to be questioned by critics and others, especially after the publication of journalist Michael Wolff's book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which depicts Trump as spending many nights locked in his White House bedroom wolfing down cheeseburgers.
During the campaign, the president's longtime personal physician said Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
