Trump will instead be examined Friday by White House physician Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy officer who replaced Jackson after Trump nominated him to be the next secretary for veteran affairs in 2018, the New York Times reported.

President Donald Trump's annual physical is set for Friday, when the American public will see if he followed the doctor's orders from past year.

When the Clemson University football team visited the White House last month, Trump hosted them with a spread of burgers, chicken nuggets and fries from a variety of fast food chains. In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity.

Real have been repeatedly linked with Hazard and he has made no secret of his desire to play for the Spanish club. Maurizio Sarri says he has not spoken to Eden Hazard about the Chelsea star's future.

It was unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public.

Mr Trump, 72, was the oldest man to become president and at 17 stone is one of the heaviest.

Jackson previous year concluded that Trump was in "excellent health" despite his physical exam that time showing him borderline obese and his "bad cholesterol" levels rising. He says he's never even had a beer.

The Sixers have been rather busy this season on the trade front, making a number of blockbuster moves. If it does not convey, the 76ers will receive second-round picks in the 2022 and 2023 draft.

The White House was then accused of allegedly skewing Trump's physical exam results by CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta. But the president was directed to try to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg) by eating better and starting to exercise, Aides said he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

At the time, Trump faced questions about his mental fitness after the book Fire and Fury was released.

The 45th president's diet, reportedly involving legendary amounts of Coke and red meat, also seems to defy most doctors' orders.

Globo TV broadcast aerial footage of the fire, which it said had been brought under control after it burned for two hours. The Ninho do Urubu, or Vulture's Nest, gets its name from the club's symbol - a vulture.

At last year's physical, Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.
