Trump went for an unannounced physical on Saturday, as the White House claimed that everything was fine and there was nothing to see here.
The White House has made a production out of announcing the previous presidential physicals, but this one was kept secret.
As Jeremy Diamond tweeted:
Trump's 2 previous physical exams in office were announced ahead of time by the White House and noted on his daily public schedule.
This time, the President's motorcade drove to Walter Reed unannounced, w/ reporters directed not to report the movement until arriving @ Walter Reed https://t.co/8CFAnZUQ7d

A White House that lies to the American people on a daily basis says everything is fine.
The White House provided this statement from Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham to PoliticusUSA, “After a quick exam and labs, the President is headed back downtown. The President remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week.”
In the past, Trump had his physical performed by a doctor who was drunk on the job, wrote a letter himself that his doctor signed about how great his health is, has provided zero test results from his physicals and has faked all of his other health data.
Nothing that Trump has released about his health in the past has been true, so the White House claims that everything is fine in Trump’s new physical should be meant with skepticism and doubt.
Before the 2020 election, voters must demand the health records of Donald Trump.
