Trump was in for some poking and prodding as doctors assess his health during his second annual medical checkup as president.

President Donald Trump on Friday was to undergo his annual physical exam, a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends.

"He did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia", Conley said.

Trump, 72, was to be put through a round of medical tests at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, that will determine his weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and other health factors.

The White House has launched a manhunt for the staffer who recently leaked President Donald Trump's private schedules, Politico reported on Friday. During the government shutdown, he even bragged about having the Clemson Tigers' White House visit "catered" by McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Domino's Pizza. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that "while he spends much of his average day in scheduled meetings, events, and calls, there is time to allow for a more creative environment that has helped make him the most productive President in modern history". More detail about the physical is likely to come next week. President Trump also received a ideal score on a cognitive exam, which Jackson said he performed at the President's request.

After Trump's first exam as president, Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, declared Trump to be in "excellent health". Jackson ultimately withdrew his nomination amid accusations of drinking on the job and overprescribing medication to patients. He will advise the president on topics including veterans' issues, the opioid crisis and health issues at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Last year's examination revealed that President Trump has a common form of heart disease, as well as high cholesterol.

Jackson said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete.
