Four current and former White House Medical Unit staff members told CNN they were ashamed of Jackson's rosy assessment of Trump's health despite the publicly released data clearly showing a different picture.

"In 2018, the president's physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, delivered a detailed report on Trump's physical and mental health and took multiple questions during a press conference with reporters".

US President Donald Trump, 72, is in a very good health, his White House physician said following his annual physical checkup.

Jackson reported that Trump, at 6-foot-3, was slightly overweight at 239 pounds previous year.

The president's health has attracted attention before.

It remained unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. But the president was directed to try to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg) by eating better and starting to exercise, Aides said he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington. The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical.

Jackson returned to the White House this month as assistant to the president and chief medical adviser. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout. Trump was said to have "incredibly good genes". Trump said a year ago he takes a statin drug to lower his cholesterol. Trump has admitted that he has not hewn closely to his diet plan.

According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson previous year.

Trump later nominated Jackson to become Veterans Affairs secretary, though the nomination faltered amid questions about Jackson's qualifications to run the government's second-largest bureaucracy and allegations of professional misconduct surfaced.
