Trump’s Annual Physical Reveals He Only Gained One Pound and Social Media Explodes with Laughter

Donald Trump gained a pound but lowered his cholesterol over the past year and “remains healthy,” according to the results of his latest annual physical exam released Wednesday by the White House.

Trump’s latest check up comes after he abruptly announced he was taking a daily dose of hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug he has heavily promoted to fend off coronavirus. The use of that drug has proven controversial because of questions about its safety, particularly among patients with heart conditions.

Trump physician Sean Conley confirmed in the report released Wednesday that Trump “took a two week course” of the drug along with a course of zinc and vitamin D. The report says Trump took the drug with “close monitoring” of electrocardiogram results.

“Based on my history, examination and consultations, the data indicates the president remains health,” Conley wrote in the memo.

The 73-year-old president has been found to generally be in good health in past annual physicals, though like many Americans he takes a statin drug designed to lower his cholesterol. The results of his latest physical showed that he weighed 244 pounds, up from 243 last year. But his total cholesterol dropped to 167 from 196 last year.

Trump’s blood pressure was measured at 121 over 79.

Trump took “portions” of his physical exam in November, but the White House never disclosed when he returned to complete that assessment.
