Trump spent more than four hours at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a checkup supervised by Dr. Sean P. Conley, his physician, and involving a panel of 11 specialists.

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".

Trump underwent a almost four-hour annual physical test on Friday - his second periodic examination after becoming the US President in January 2017.

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

U.S. President Donald Trump gives two thumbs up to the crowd during a campaign rally on the eve of the U.S. mid-term elections in Cleveland, Ohio., U.S., November 5, 2018. He said Trump's blood pressure was 122 over 74, and his total cholesterol was 223, which was higher than recommended.

Jackson later was nominated by Trump to run the Department of Veteran Affairs, but the admiral withdrew his name after allegations of misconduct surfaced, including accusations he improperly dispensed medication. "Absolutely", Jackson said at the time.

Trump also has long had a well-documented fondness for fast food. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown.
