  • Trump to receive 2nd physical as president after last year's controversy

The full medical reports and recommendations are still being finalized, according to Coney's memo, which added that Trump is "is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency and beyond".

President Donald Trump on Friday was to undergo his annual physical exam, a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends.

He didn't undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley said.

The 72-year-old president is a teetotaler and does not smoke, but likes a sedate lifestyle. Trump, however, has said that he walks a lot in the White House complex.

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 is expected to stick to the more traditional medium of writing up the physical results in a brief document.

With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Mr Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza.

Cox also urged Herring to "adhere to the standard he has set for others", a nod to Herring's previous call that Northam resign . The civil rights leader said he came to Richmond to deliver a message to the governor: "I'm not going to be your minstrel!"


No further details on the president's health have been released yet.

This is Trump's second health checkup since becoming president.

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. Jackson ultimately withdrew his nomination amid accusations of drinking on the job and overprescribing medication to patients.

Jackson's assessment of the President's health came under fire from medical professionals, including from within the White House's medical unit.

Last year's examination revealed that President Trump has a common form of heart disease, as well as high cholesterol. Neurological, cognitive and stress tests were also performed. "Absolutely", Jackson said at the time. Last year's exam lasted more than four hours.
