The results come after Trump underwent his second physical exam while in office and will likely come under intense scrutiny. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy. His weight and other measures such as cholesterol were not revealed in the intial memo released late afternoon 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.
"The president received a diet and exercise plan a year ago after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", Hogan Gidley, the principal deputy White House press secretary, told CNN on Thursday.
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.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley on Thursday told CNN that Trump was working on improving his diet. "And he's tracking that, I'm tracking that, and we're working on that".
Trump has reportedly made only slight modifications to his diet. He makes no secret of preferring a diet of red meat, fast food and candies.
President Trump has not followed his doctor's exercise and diet plan to the letter, the White House said before his annual medical check-up today. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. Jackson, who is still under investigation, will also travel and work closely with White House staff.
The president has considered golfing his exercise-though he navigates the course in a cart-but has not played for more than two months due to the government shutdown.
