On Friday, President Trump received his very first medical exam while serving as the Commander-in-chief of the United States. The medical doctor who was in-charge of the check-up alluded that it proceeded exceptionally well though he did not give any further details. The medical check-up was conducted at the Walter Reed National Medical Center. However, a psychiatric exam was not included in the comprehensive medical exam that is mandatory by law for any person who serves in the office of the president of the United States.
The president would walk out of the medical facility on the afternoon of Friday this week. Earlier on Thursday, President Trump had issued a statement that he had expectations and was optimistic that his medical exam would turn out very well. The president who is currently 71 years of age, said that he would be surprised if the medical test turned out otherwise. When he took the reins of power in January 2018, Trump became the oldest person to assume the office of the president of the United States. The president added that the scheduled medical check-up would negatively affect the stock market if it turned out that he had medical issues.

He added that blood pressure and cholesterol levels were all within the normal range. President Trump does not consume alcohol nor smoke tobacco but makes use of medical drugs to keep his cholesterol levels in check.
