It’s been more than 6 months since President Trump claimed to have started his annual physical at Walter Reed hospital but the White House is declining to explain why he has yet to complete the yearly doctor’s exam.
Six months after saying he started the process, Trump hasn’t completed his annual 2020 physical.
/May 22, 2020, 11:08 PM UTCByGeoff Bennett and Monica AlbaWASHINGTON — It’s been more than six months since President Donald Trumpclaimed to have started his annual physicalat Walter Reed hospital but the White House is declining to explain why he has yet to complete the yearly doctor’s examination.
Senior administration officials did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment about the delay — despite Trumpannouncing this weekhe was taking an unproven and potentially dangerous drug after being exposed to an aide who tested positive for coronavirus.
Asked in early March about when he would complete his physical, the president told reporters, “I’m going probably over the next 90 days. I’m so busy, I can’t do it.”A month later, as the coronavirus pandemic hospitalized UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Trump said he would finish the exam “at the appropriate time” adding, “but I feel very good.”
A president’s annual physical typically occurs at the beginning of a new year. Trump’s 2019 exam was conducted in February, and his 2018 physical was conducted in January. It is uncommon for a president to complete a routine physical exam months apart and in multiple stages.
“As a part of granting a president as much power as we do, he has the obligation to demonstrate that he is well or, if he is not, to let us know exactly what is amiss,” said presidential historian Michael Beschloss.“From the time in the 1950s when Dwight Eisenhower released unprecedented information about the heart attack, ileitis and stroke he suffered in office, most presidents have fulfilled that demand, including releasing the results of regular physicals,” Beschloss said. “Too often in history have presidents concealed secret illnesses and medicine routines that had the potential to undermine their leadership, and the wellbeing of all of us.”

You take on a real job like that and see how much time you have He was prescribed hydroxycjloroquine, so he should forced to answer for his lies and removed from office if he continues to do so. Dr. Irwin Redlener, director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness, says President Trump has 'become a personal public health hazard to the citizens of this country.'
He’s mentally deranged. Doesn’t want it confirmed. realDonaldTrump cnnbrk We honestly dont care. We all know you have to constantly push your BS liberal agenda because Trump has exposed you for how pathetic you truly are, but you just look so sad reaching hard like this! He is sick and has been for years. We will never find out his health conditions, WH will cover it up!
chadmom63 Okay, but again. If there is something seriously wrong with him, do we want to encourage medical intervention or let God handle her “chosen one” as she sees fit? Oh Gee. Maybe he has been busy trying to keep the country from financially collapsing while trying to lose as little US citizens as possible. Let’s get off the political soap box and respect the US President.
It's a prostate exam. He does not want a finger up his butt. Jesus people, learn more about medicine. Why is this a story? I mean i have a hamburger bun that fell on the floor... Really? This is all you have to update the US with? you are a joke🤣 That's because they know he'll fail. He's demented at minimum.
None of ur business It’s a take home exam. They might discover his brain is missing You are violating HIPPA TRUMP2020 Trump didn't like the information on the first part. Decided that the doctors are Democrats and isn't interested in fake medical records. Whats new Obese jimkehoe He doesn't do things he knows he'll fail at... Why do you think Melania always looks so angry.
He may be taken already but don't want you guys to know... What the plan? Maybe this is why the WH is searching for so many pro Trump doctors because they need one to give him a clean bill of health no matter what 6 mths 1 year 🤷♂️ Running out of real news to discuss, are we? Ummmm..., he's been pretty busy.
It's because he's waiting for the window in his weight/Blood pressure/ Blood sugar that will make it look like he isn't going to have either a heart attack or is a drug user. God, if he finished it, they would skewer him for occupying doctors with such trivial efforts during a pandemic. Deadbeat donald is probably as sick as the dog he is and he does not want to admit it. Remember the 25th amendment.
It’s Trump. It’s gonna take 6 months to maneuver the flab around. I got nothing else.... C'mon he's way too busy spreading the virus... I still don’t accept the “President” designation. He is just Trump or Dotard to me. I can’t wait until he is prisoner number 04879458. *Trump was in China 11/8-11/10, *Allegedly, Trump was made aware of the virus 2nd week of Nov. and alerted NATO & IDF. *On 11/16 he goes to Walter Reed for 'a physical' in the middle of the night. Uh huh.
I HAVE HAD IT WITH HIS 1 H AND GESTURE : buy him an accordian!! tRump doesn't need to go to the Dr. anymore, they bring the pills to him. Likely because all of the drugs and mental decline Everyone is neglecting stuff like this during quarantine. some much worse things. Because he is afraid of what the HyDroXyChor will have done to his physical results!
Who cares. It’s all a lie anyway. He knows his health status and is not going to share it with anyone for as long as he can avoid it. Something to hide. In the mean time Biden doesn't even know what office he's running for It’s being audited by the IRS and it’s very complicated so most people wouldn’t understand it anyhow
It seems they’ve not been able to call the audible from scrimmage because no one can understand his blathering 😐. Is someone keeping track of all the laws we need to enact to keep all of Trumps antics from happening again? I've lost count. Probly has better things to do. Rushed to Walter Reed in the middle of the night for his 'physical'.
Who cares. The dems want to elect a dementia patient. He got a prescription two weeks ago for hydroxychloroquine from his doctor you dumbasses
Top House Dems demand Trump reinstate ousted State watchdogTop House committee chairs are demanding that President Trump reinstate the State Department watchdog he ousted at Mike Pompeo's request earlier this month Good luck with that. A return to more calm and ordered public policy making on health, safety, jobs, and climate, or four more years of a more experienced shitstorm developer. Our call. Does anyone honestly believe that Trump will hire a watchdog?
House Democrats introduce inspector general protection bill after Trump fires several watchdogsThe bill came a week after Trump fired the State Department's inspector general on a recommendation from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Super. The 124538th bill passed by House that has zero chance of becoming law. Almost as if the House is just a bunch of actors, at least on one side. Not a good idea. Biden needs to fire all these phonies on 1/20
Trump Says Mailing In Your Ballot Is Corrupt, Unless You're TrumpThe president repeated his baseless conspiracy theory that voting by mail leads to election fraud.
