The White House has released a memo on President Trump’s health after speculation arose from a weekend visit to the hospital.
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released the memo from Dr. Sean Conley, physician to the president. It explained that Trump’s Sunday visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was part of a routine checkup but because of “scheduling uncertainties,” it was “kept off the record.”

“Despite some of the speculation, the President has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues,” Conley wrote. “Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations.”
Questions arose over the weekend about the seemingly impromptu visit to the medical center.
Full results from the exam will be released later but the president’s physician said Trump’s total cholesterol is 165, with HDL of 70, LDL of 84 and non-HDL of 95, all within recommended ranges.
President Trump is 73.
