"The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Dr. Ronny Jackson said, in a statement shared by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with White House Physician Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, following his annual physical at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, January 12, 2018.

The White House announced it would offer reporters the chance to speak with Jackson in the middle of an outside debate over the president's mental fitness.

Trump himself will determine what information to make public, a person familiar with the process of presidential exams said.

While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty". The White House wouldn't say whether doctors would test the president's cognitive abilities.

US Ambassador Robert "Woody" Johnson - a Trump appointee - also explained in an article for the Evening Standard the decision to move the embassy was made in 2008 because of security fears after 9/11.

"I think it's going to go very well", he said, adding that he would be "surprised if it doesn't". Additionally, his eating habits reportedly include plenty of fast food.

Trump's physical will be among the most closely scrutinized of any president in decades, perhaps since Ronald Reagan, who was wounded in a 1981 assassination attempt and also suffered from Alzheimer's disease while still in office, according to his youngest son, Ron Reagan.

After ideas for restoration projects to help immigrants in Haiti, El Salvador, and unspecified African countries were floated as a potential part of a bipartisan immigration deal, the President is reported to have said: "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?"

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.

Questions have already been asked about whether Trump is mentally unfit to the President of the United States, based on his aggressive posts on Twitter and claims he has slurred speeches.

Urging Jackson to perform this evaluation, they write, "The health of the President relies on it-as do American lives and the safety of our nation".

More will soon be known about Trump's physical health, although exactly how much more isn't clear. He doesn't smoke or drink alcohol. Because the health information is considered private under federal law, the President himself must sign off on its release.

As he pointed out, "It's been shown that people age twice as quickly when you're in the president's office". Bill Clinton was a runner who installed a jogging track at the White House.
