"The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well," Dr. Ronnie Jackson, the president's physician, said in a statement.Of sound body and mind?
Jackson added that "the president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday."
The president's physical examination came amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit.
Trump himself has pushed back hard against any suggestion that he's mentally unfit, this week declaring himself "a very stable genius."
The examination lasted several hours and considered such things as Trump's blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, heart rate and weight.
While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty."
