Past presidents’ physicals: What we learned

( CNN) President Donald Trump had a physical examination Friday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The exam carried out by US Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the same physician who performed President Barack Obama’s last two physicals while in office.

CNN gathered past reports from former presidents’ physical exams — documents that typically share basic datum such as height, weight and blood pressure, but also detail skin tag removal for Obama, a cyst drained on George H. W. Bush’s finger, and how Gerald Ford’s doctor advocated for a White House swimming pool.

President aren’t obligated to release any results from their examination, but the White House said it would offer a “detailed readout” of Trump’s exam on Tuesday.
