President Donald Trump will undergo his second physical examination as commander-in-chief, but will do it without Dr. Ronny Jackson, who gave him a clean bill of health before controversy struck the physician previous year.
President Trump is in "very good health" according to his doctor.
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.
The doctor also declared that he had told the president he "might live to be 200 years old" if Trump would just eat healthier foods. He is not known to exercise beyond his beloved rounds of golf.
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.
"In 2018, the president's physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, delivered a detailed report on Trump's physical and mental health and took multiple questions during a press conference with reporters".
In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas.
