    WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump spent more than two hours at Walter Reed National Medical Center on Saturday for what the White House said were medical tests as part of his annual physical.

    The appointment wasn’t on Trump’s weekend public schedule, and his last physical was in February. Press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the 73-year-old president was “anticipating a very busy 2020” and wanted to take advantage of “a free weekend” in Washington to begin portions of his routine checkup. She was not more specific about the testing.

    Trump’s 2018 and 2019 physicals were announced in advance and appeared on his public schedule.

    The February checkup showed he had put on some pounds and was now officially considered obese. His Body Mass Index was 30.4. His weight was 243 pounds and he was 6 feet, 3 inches tall.

    Trump spent more than four hours at Walter Reed on Feb. 8 for his most recent checkup, supervised by Dr. Sean P. Conley, his physician, and involving a panel of 11 specialists.

    “I am happy to announce the President of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond,” Conley wrote afterward.

    Test results came out six days later, showing that he weighed 243 pounds, compared with 236 pounds in September 2016 before he became president.

    An index rating of 30 is the level at which doctors consider someone obese under the commonly used formula. About 40 percent of Americans are obese. That raises their risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke and some forms of cancer.

    Trump doesn’t drink alcohol or smoke. His primary form of exercise is golf.

    The physical testing came as House investigators on Capitol Hill interviewed a White House budget official as part of the impeachment inquiry.

    1. There is absolutely no way Donald Trump would give up a day of golf for routine medical tests. He has golfed every Saturday that he’s not been out of the country. Unlike previous Presidents almost every Saturday has been “free” and he’s spent the day’s golfing.
      There is an obvious cover up by the deep state. It’s possible that he overdosed on his Adderall or other medication.

    2. Trump has got to use the exercise equipment which is in the White House, and which he refuses to use. His first Physician at the White House stated that he would try to get him to use the treadmill, and other exercise machines on a regular basis. In fact, that has never occurred, as Trump refuses to exercise. The same Doctor, as well as Ivana stated that they would try to get him to change his diet. However, the President loves cheeseburgers, steaks, and other chazzarei. It is not healthy for someone who is past 73 years old, and is in such a high stress position, to be obese.
