Donald Trump's Doctor: President in ‘Very Good Health’

Donald Trump's Doctor: President in ‘Very Good Health’

Jackson a year ago concluded that Trump was in "excellent health" despite his physical exam that time showing him borderline obese and his "bad cholesterol" levels rising. He specified that the president was not under sedation or anesthesia at any point during the exam.

Trump, however, has said that he walks a lot in the White House complex.

Trump, 72, was to be put through a round of medical tests at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, that will determine his weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and other health factors.

Questions were raised about the true health of the president after the first one.

Last year's physical drew incredulous reactions, as Jackson told assembled reporters in the press briefing room that Trump was in excellent health, despite facts in direct contradiction to that statement, such as Trump's borderline obesity.

Chief Executive Sundar Pichai (pictured) has said only that it's a billion-dollar-a-quarter business, and that was a year ago. Cloud engineers and sales professionals also made up the bulk of the 4,000 employees it hired during the quarter, Porat said.

After the 2018 physical, Jackson told reporters the president weighed 108 kilograms (239 pounds) and could reasonably lose approximately 4 to 7 kilograms (10 to 15 pounds).

Mr. Trump loves fast food and had ordered burgers, french fries and pizza when he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House last month.

Aides said he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

Conley replaced Jackson after Trump nominated the latter to lead the Veterans Affairs Department. Also, current and former colleagues accused Jackson of professional misconduct, including loosely dispensing medications and on-the-job drunkenness. Jackson, who is still under investigation, will also travel and work closely with White House staff.

At the time, Trump faced questions about his mental fitness after the book Fire and Fury was released. In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity.
