The White House says President Donald Trump will undergo the customary presidential physical on Jan. 12.
Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the date Thursday. The White House had previously said Trump would have the physical early in the year at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, MSNBC reported.
Sanders has said the results will be released after the physical.

The 71-year-old president has released limited information about his health. During the campaign, his gastroenterologist released a four-paragraph letter saying he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected.” Trump also appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” to say he felt great, while releasing his cholesterol levels and cancer screenings.
This year, there were several instances when Trump’s mind seemed to float somewhere in space. During these alleged “senior moments,” Trump wandered off before security led him back on the right path. In one occurrence, he appeared to forget where he was on the tarmac after deplaning.
Recently Donald Trump slurred his words during his speech in which he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Political pundits began calling into question the president’s physical health more vehemently than ever before.
CNN reports that during the campaign, his doctor did release a statement, but it was rather light on specifics and asserted, “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Trump drew scrutiny several weeks ago when he seemed to slur his words during an address. The White House said his throat was dry.
