Trump Declares Himself in ‘Very Good’ Health Following Unscheduled Medical Exam

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Sunday he was in “very good” health after undergoing the first phase of an annual medical check the previous day.

Trump tweeted that he had the first phase of checks at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington. “Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year,” he said.

The White House said Trump had undergone a quick exam and some laboratory tests.

“Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on Saturday.

She said the president also visited the medical staff and thanked them for their care of wounded service members, and met with the family of a special forces soldier injured in Afghanistan.

“The President remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week,” Grisham said.

She provided no details about the exam or laboratory tests that Trump underwent during his ninth visit to the medical center.

The president’s unexpected and unscheduled trip to the medical center triggered questions on social media since it came months before the annual physical has been carried out in the past.

In a tweet, Grisham decried the questions as irresponsible.

“Seems to be a lot more fun for people/some reporters to speculate & spread irresponsible/dangerous rumors,” she said.

The White House typically determines what data will be released from the President’s health exam. Trump is not compelled to release any information, and there is no template for the presidential exam.

In February, Trump was declared “in very good health” by the White House physician after hours of examinations.

Trump, known for his love of hamburgers and well-done steaks and an aversion to the gym, gained weight from his physical in 2017, pushing his body mass index into the obese category.

Considering that DJ Trump is a pathological liar, his saying he’s in very good health should worry his followers.

Dagnabbit! Those pesky bone spurs are creeping up again. I told my dad that that excuse wouldn’t always work. But, heck, he might be right this time. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

physicals are done at Bethseda. Also doctors don’t work on Saturday for routine visits. He is preparing to resign or come up with a health excuse to get out without losing face. I am too sick to testify at the impeachment trial. What did he do so energetic at his rallies but stand and yell about how great he is. A handicapped person could do that.

it seems that the only thing that would make you happy “is the total destruction of the American way of life” banstan

Anyone who thinks that way is totally confused. That is fascism at work.

NOTHING could be further from the truth. Just because I am not burdened with being a Cult-45 member and am free to criticize wrongdoing and wrongthinking doesn’t mean that I am against the country, the Constitution or our ideals.

I didn’t realize that going to the doctor twice a year was considered “a mysterious trip”. I’ve been there twice in 6 months! Wonder what that’s called by the marginally intelligent Rupar.
