President Donald Trump on Friday was to undergo his annual physical exam, a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends.
The president spent the day at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, where he was examined by his physician and 11 other board certified specialists for a total of four hours.
"The president received a diet and exercise plan previous year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", said White House spokesman Hogan Gidley. During the government shutdown, he even bragged about having the Clemson Tigers' White House visit "catered" by McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Domino's Pizza.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's unstructured "executive time", claiming that it helps to foster a "more creative environment" for the president. It's unclear how much more detail will be released in the coming days.

Jackson a year ago concluded that Trump was in "excellent health" despite his physical exam that time showing him borderline obese and his "bad cholesterol" levels rising. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.
According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson previous year.
It's time for President Donald Trump's annual medical checkup.
Last year, doctors checked the president's eyes; ears, nose and throat; heart; lungs; gastrointestinal tract; skin; and teeth. He also said of Trump: "He has incredibly good genes, and it's just the way God made him".
Jackson said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete.
