Jackson says he looks forward to proving additional details at a White House briefing Tuesday.

The exam at Walter Reed Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Md., will be the first for Trump since he took office almost a year ago.

Jackson will take questions from reporters on the president's health on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well".

This is due in part to the fact that he ascended to the presidency at age 70, making him the oldest person to ever be voted into office.

House votes to extend questionable NSA surveillance program for six more years
In one tweet, the president appeared critical of the law, saying it was used "to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign". Americans cannot be the subject of 702 surveillance, but can be picked up in the surveillance of foreign targets.

The physical follows recent speculation surrounding the president's health leading up to the exam. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters Monday that Trump is "sharp as a tack".

"The days in which a president could hide health problems, even major ones, from the public are rightly gone".

"I think it's going to go very well", the president predicted.

A Washington Post report published last month said consisted of Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.

Dr. Tochi Iroku-Malize, chair for family medicine at Northwell Health in NY, said the main components of a physical involve the basics of getting a patient's height, weight, body mass index, and blood pressure, as well as listening to the lungs and heart.

The doctor's 2016 letter stated that Trump's testosterone level, 441.6, was in the normal range, as were his PSA reading for prostate abnormalities and tests of his liver and thyroid.

Amid questions about Trump's fitness for office, no psychiatric tests are planned, but previous examinations have included neurological examinations, including motor function tests.

Dr. Roy Buchinsky, an internal medicine physician and director of corporate health and executive wellness at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, said there are cognitive tests that a general practitioner can perform, such as asking a patient to draw a clock or asking them a few questions. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he went on to add.

"Americans should know whether their president has the energy to stay focused through a long workday and the chances that a significant health issue could compromise the executive office in the years to come". But already his diet has been widely discussed, including his proclivity for fast food, well-done steak with ketchup and diet cola.
