Late last week, Donald Trump visited the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland, where he reportedly underwent an unscheduled medical checkup , tweeting shortly afteward that “everything is very good”.
In a memorandum released on Monday, Sean Conley, Donald Trump’s personal physician, stated that the US President’s visit to Walter Reed National Military Center last week was a “routine” physical exam.
“This past Saturday afternoon the President travelled up to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre for a routine, planned interim checkup as part of the regular, primary preventative care he receives throughout the year. Due to scheduling uncertainties, the trip was kept off the record,” Conley pointed out.
He added that “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.”
“Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations [during the exam]”, Conley noted.
The memorandum comes after CNN cited an unnamed source as saying that Trump’s Saturday visit to Walter Reed was allegedly out of line with the protocol of a routine presidential medical exam.
The source claimed that Walter Reed’s medical staff was not notified about a “VIP” visit ahead of Trump’s arrival, which indicates that the US President’s visit was non-routine.
