The two-hour visit to the Bethesda, Maryland, hospital included lab work and was not on Trump’s schedule, according to The New York Times.
In an appearance on Fox News, Grisham said the president was preparing for “a really busy year ahead” by getting “a head start with some routine checkups as part of his annual exam.”
“He is healthy as can be,” she added. “He’s got more energy than anybody in the White House.”
Fox News opinion host Jeanine Pirro, a staunch defender of the Trump administration, praised the president as “almost superhuman.”
In a midnight tweet on Sunday, Trump said he had been visiting “a great family of a young man under major surgery” at Walter Reed. The patient is a U.S. Army Special Forces soldier who was wounded in Afghanistan, CNN reported.
While there, Trump said he “began phase one of my yearly physical.”
“Everything very good (great!),” he wrote. “Will complete next year.”
Trump’s previous physical in February, which also took place at Walter Reed, was on his public schedule.
Sean Conley, a Navy officer and the president’s personal doctor, said in a memo at the time that he determined in the four-hour exam that Trump was “in very good health” and anticipated that he would “remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond.”
