White House Releases Results of Trump’s Annual Physical

President Donald Trump weighs 244 pounds, stands 6 feet 3 inches, has a blood pressure of 121/79 mmHG and a resting heart rate 63 beats per minute, the White House said on Wednesday in a summary of his annual physical.

The White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, said the results indicate Trump is “healthy.”

A memo from the President’s physical, Dr. Sean Conley, said “there were no findings of significance or changes to report.”

Trump made an unannounced visit to Walter Reed on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019, for a little more than two hours to undertake exams for part of the physical. Medical staff at Walter Reed did not get a staff-wide notice about a presidential visit. He traveled via motorcade rather than Marine One.

In the memo released Wednesday, Conley said Trump underwent additional tests at the White House.

The memo noted Trump’s use of hydroxychloroquine, which he revealed last month he began taking after staffers at the White House tested positive for COVID-19.

In the memo, Conley wrote the decision to take the drug—which is currently in trials to test its efficacy for treating the CCP virus—”was done in consultation with his appropriate care team members and close monitoring of the electrocardiogram (EKG) for changes in the QT interval.”

The memo said Trump completed a round of the drug without side effects, and that subsequent CCP virus tests came back negative.
