President Trump has medical checkup

Last year, President Trump received a glowing bill of health from his then-physician Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who noted the President's "excellent health" and "incredible genes" in a briefing with reporters. The president scored a ideal 30 on an assessment detecting cognitive impairment, answering critics who said that he occasionally repeated himself.

Trump loves the more sedate game of golf, but rides a cart between holes and has said that anything more strenuous is actually bad for your health.

Although he was given a clean bill of health, doctors advised the President to exercise more and cut his calorie intake. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

Last year's test revealed he weighed 239 pounds (108kg), with a body mass index of 29.9. Conley is expected to stick to the more traditional medium of writing up the physical results in a brief document. He will advise the president on topics including veterans' issues, the opioid crisis and health issues at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Trump, who does not drink alcohol or smoke, enjoys fast food. But according to spokesman Hogan Gidley, Mr Trump "admits" he has not followed his diet and exercise plan "religiously".

Dr. Conley released no details about what a team of 11 specialists had found in the course of a four-hour examination of Mr. Trump.

The admiral denied the allegations, which Trump called "lies", the president subsequently recommended him for a second star (higher military rank), and the president recently promoted him to White House chief medical adviser. Doctors checked his eyes, ears, nose and throat, heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, skin, and teeth.

Jackson said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete. Last year's exam lasted more than four hours.
