Trump To Undergo First Physical Of Presidency

The Associated Press reports:

The White House says President Donald Trump will undergo the customary presidential physical on Jan. 12.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the date Thursday. The White House had previously said Trump would have the physical early in the year at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Sanders has said the results will be released after the physical.

Trump drew scrutiny several weeks ago when he seemed to slur his words during an address. The White House said his throat was dry.

CBS News reports:

Before being elected into office, the Trump campaign released some details of his medical information following examinations conducted by his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, in a series of letters.

A one-page letter describing Mr. Trump’s medical history reviewed his cholesterol levels, blood pressure, which was 116/70, testosterone level and blood sugar level. It also said Mr. Trump, 70 years of age at the time, weighed 236 pounds, which means his body mass index (BMI) of 29.5 would make him overweight. A BMI of 30 or above falls within the range of obesity. Trump’s campaign said those results were from a physical exam conducted by Bornstein on Sept. 9, 2016.

In the first medical letter, released in Dec. 2015, Bornstein said that, “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
