President Trump is set Friday to undergo his first physical exam since taking office — a move that could offer a rare public snapshot of the 71-year-old leader's health.
"I think it's going to go very well," Trump told reporters Thursday. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't."
The exam will be overseen by Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral who directs the White House medical unit. Earlier information about Trump's health came from his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who famously declared in 2015 that Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." Bornstein later provided a fuller accounting of Trump's medical status, which was unveiled with considerable drama during a televised sit-down Trump had with celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz in September 2016.
