His tweet came a day after Sean Conley, the physician to the president, declared in a memo summarizing Trump’s recent exam that he was in “very good health.”
Conley also said in the brief memo that he anticipates the president would remain in good health “for the duration of his presidency, and beyond.”
The memo did not provide further details about the president’s assessment.
Conley said reports and recommendations regarding the president’s health are “still being finalized,” indicating more information could be released at a later date.
The exam marked the second physical Trump received as president.
