Trump to undergo second physical exam Friday

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.

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

"Over the course of approximately four hours, I performed and supervised the evaluation with a panel of 11 different board-certified specialists".

Almost a dozen White House officials and sources close to Trump said he is reluctant to change his eating habits and has not set foot in the White House fitness room, calling exercise a "waste of the energy".

"I am happy to announce the President of the United States is in very good health and anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency, and beyond", Conley wrote in his letter.

Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley reported.

CNN cited another source as saying that the President still orders fast food to be delivered to the White House and enjoys well done red meat dinners. His primary form of exercise is golf. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza.

Adm. Ronny Jackson, Trump's physician a year ago, said while Trump was "more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part. we're going to do both".

Trump, who is 6-foot-3, weighed 239 pounds at his physical past year and Dr. Ronny Jackson, who did the first examination, said Trump should aim to lose 10 to 15 pounds.

Last January, Jackson said Trump's health was "excellent" compared to other 71-year-old American men in health results. He also said of Trump: "He has incredibly good genes, and it's just the way God made him". Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

Trump's former physician, Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, became an Internet sensation past year for his public pronouncement that Trump has "incredibly good genes".
