Trump hospital trip 'routine'World | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 20 Nov 2019
Donald Trump's doctor denied claims the president had suffered chest pain and gone for an unannounced medical check in Washington.
Trump, 73, spent just over an hour on Saturday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, physician Sean Conley said in a statement from the White House.
"The president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues," Conley said.
"Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic evaluations."
Some reports were that the check was unscheduled and that Trump had suffered chest discomfort. But Conley said that "due to scheduling uncertainties the trip was kept off the record," but the check was "routine, planned."
The statement included details of Trump's cholesterol results and added that after the check he spoke to the family of a soldier undergoing surgery at the hospital.
