White House Physician Says Trump ‘Remains Healthy’ After Latest Physical

White House Physician Sean Conley says President Donald Trump “remains health” after he completed his third physical as president.

“Upon review of systems and physical exam, there were no findings of significance or changes to report,” Conley wrote in a memo. 

According to Conley, Trump is six feet and three inches tall and weighs 244 pounds. He continued to take aspirin, propecia, and a pill to lower his cholesterol.

He has a resting heartbeat of 63 beats per minute.

Conley also said that Trump took a combination of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and vitamin D to help protect him from the coronavirus as several White House staffers tested positive.

“Following the diagnosis of COVID-19 in two West Wing staffers this past May, as a preventative measure, the President took a two-week course of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), with zinc and vitamin D,” Conley wrote.

He continued, “This was done in consultation with his appropriate care team members and close monitoring of the electrocardiogram (EKG) for changes in the QT interval.

“The president completed the regimen safely and without side effects. He continues to receive regular COVID-19 testing, and to date, all results have been negative” Conley added. 

Conley also said Trump made two visits to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his examination. The first was in November 2019, and the second was in April 2020. 

Trump was seen leaving the White House in November for a previously unscheduled trip to Walter Reed, which fueled speculation about his health. 

However, Trump claimed that he was simply completing “phase one” of his physical.

At the time, Conley denied that the president had a medical emergency, “Despite some speculation, the President has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues.”

“Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations,” he added. 

Trump had previously disclosed that he was that the combination of drugs to help protect him from the coronavirus, despite the unproven nature of the drugs.

The news that Trump was taking hydroxychloroquine led to swift criticism, as IJR reported.
