Trump has his annual physical at Walter Reed

US President Donald Trump waves as he walks on South Lawn of the White House before his departure for an annual physical test at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, in Washington, US, February 8, 2019.

Trump will be at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington later Friday for the physical exam. The Trump administration also submitted his name to increase his naval rank from rear admiral to two-star admiral. In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity.

The results come after Trump underwent his second physical exam while in office and will likely come under intense scrutiny.

His personal physician declared him to be in "excellent health" after a battery of tests last January on Trump's heart, lungs, gastrointestinal system and other areas.

Mr Trump, 72, was the oldest man to become president and at 17 stone is one of the heaviest. He says he's never even had a beer.

Not for Trump the basketball sessions that Barack Obama sweated through in the White House, or the bike rides of George W. Bush.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas. He is not expected to hold a public briefing on Trump's health, the report said.

According to Jackson a year ago, Trump's secret is genes.
