US President Donald Trump is undergoing medical tests as part of what the White House said was his annual check-up.
The appointment at Walter Reed National Medical Centre was not on Mr Trump’s weekend public schedule that was released on Friday night, and his last physical exam was in February.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he was in “very good” health after undergoing the first phase of an annual medical check the previous day.
Trump tweeted that he had the first phase of checks at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington. “Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year,” he said.

Visited a great family of a young man under major surgery at the amazing Walter Reed Medical Center. Those are truly some of the best doctors anywhere in the world. Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year.

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the 73-year-old is “anticipating a very busy 2020” and wanted to take advantage of “a free weekend” in Washington to begin “portions of his routine” check-up.
His check-up in February revealed he had put on weight and was officially considered obese, with a body mass index of 30.4.
