WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump is in for some poking and prodding as doctors assess whether his "incredibly good genes" continue to serve him well.

Trump was travelling to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington on Friday for a follow-up to his first annual medical checkup as president.

His personal physician declared him to be in "excellent health" in January 2018 after a battery of tests on his heart, lungs, gastrointestinal system and other areas. Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, then presided over an extraordinary White House news conference in which he said of Trump: "He has incredibly good genes, and it s just the way God made him."

Jackson, then the president s personal physician, also predicted that Trump, who doesn t drink alcohol or smoke, will make it through his presidency with no serious medical issues.
