Trump told the Reuters reporters that he gets “more exercise than people think” after Trump’s White House doctor said he would recommend the president exercise more.
“I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that,” the president said. “I run over to a building next door. I get more exercise than people think.”
Donald Trump said that he also gets exercise on the golf course, even though he usually makes use of a golf cart to traverse the course because walking the entire course takes up time.
“I don’t want to spend the time,” Trump said.
“Most us could lose a couple of pounds.” He then surveyed the reporters in the interview and told them they were in “pretty good shape” he said.
The results of Trump’s first physical exam as president were released by the White House on Tuesday.
His White House doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, declared the president is in “excellent” health.
Trump was listed at 75 inches tall and weighing 239 pounds, according to the exam results.
Jackson said that Trump’s “overall health is excellent,” adding that the president had mostly normal results on several tests of his cholesterol and heart health.
