President Donald Trump is likely to be in good health for the remainder of his presidency and beyond, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley wrote in a letter to Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday evening.

President Donald Trump will undergo his second physical examination as commander-in-chief, but will do it without Dr. Ronny Jackson, who gave him a clean bill of health before controversy struck the physician a year ago. Conley is expected to stick to the more traditional medium of writing up the physical results in a brief document.

Last year's physical drew incredulous reactions, as Jackson told assembled reporters in the press briefing room that Trump was in excellent health, despite facts in direct contradiction to that statement, such as Trump's borderline obesity.

The 72-year-old President, who has high cholesterol and has disputed reports that he has a common form of heart disease, was given a diet and exercise plan over a year ago during his first physical since taking the Oval Office.

Now Virginia GOP leader has blackface problem
Among the pictures on Northam's page is one in which a man in blackface is standing next to another in a Ku Klux Klan costume. Norment received his bachelor's degree at the Virginia Military Institute before earning a law degree at William & Mary.

Less good: the former real estate tycoon and reality TV performer unashamedly embraces the couch potato life.

At the time, Trump faced questions about his mental fitness after the book Fire and Fury was released.

However, Ronny Jackson, the White House doctor, said that the president needed to lose the best part of a stone, follow an exercise routine and curb his appetite for fast food. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

The 45th president's diet, reportedly involving legendary amounts of Coke and red meat, also seems to defy most doctors' orders. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

According to Jackson past year, Trump's secret is genes. "It's just the way God made him".
