川普总统2018年1月12日在马里兰州贝塞斯达的沃尔特·里德国家军事医疗中心结束体检后,乘坐海军陆战队一号总统专用直升机前往临近的安德鲁斯联合基地之前,在飞机旁和白宫医生罗尼·杰克逊握手。

川普总统的医生星期五宣布,川普的“健康状况非常好”。此前川普进行了将近一年前宣誓就职以来的首次已知体检。

杰克逊在一份递交给白宫发言人萨拉·哈克比·桑德斯的声明中说,“总统今天在沃尔特·里德国家军事医疗中心的体检进行得格外顺利。总统的健康状况非常好,我期待着星期二就此做出一些详细说明。”

体检是星期五在沃尔特·里德国家军事医疗中心由总统医师罗尼·杰克逊医生进行。川普在乘坐“海军陆战队一号”总统专用直升机返回附近的安德鲁斯联合基地之前,在直升机旁和他握了手。

杰克逊是一名军医,拥有海军少将军衔。美国海军少将按资历分为资深二星和资浅一星两级,杰克逊是一星,相当于其它军种的准将。2006年,当时在伊拉克服役的杰克逊医生被调入小布什总统的白宫,成为总统医疗团队成员。他后来担任奥巴马总统的首席医师。川普总统入主白宫后,杰克逊成为他的首席医师。

川普总统在沃尔特·里德医疗中心花了三个小时多一点的时间,体检结束后他向大约50米外的记者挥手致意,但是没有讲话。

川普总统一天前对记者表示,“我认为体检结果会很好。如果体检结果不好我会感到意外”。

鉴于总统受到联邦健康隐私法的保护,因此公开哪些信息将取决于川普总统本人的决定。

白宫发言人桑德斯表示,对现年71岁的川普总统进行的体检不包括心理健康评估。

自从去年1月川普总统就职以来,虽然川普总统没有已知的重大健康问题,但是很多人担心川普总统可能有神经紊乱的问题。

川普是美国历史上就职时年龄最大的总统,他在公开场合曾经表现出语言含混不清并且用双手去拿喝水杯。

桑德斯驳斥一些记者对总统健康表达的关注是“荒谬可笑的”。

川普的身体状况可能是自从罗纳德·里根总统以来几十年间美国历任总统当中最受密切关注的。据里根总统的幼子罗恩·里根所说,里根总统1981年在未遂刺杀中受伤,同时在白宫执政后期已经开始受到阿尔兹海默症的困扰。

但是里根总统直到离任五年后,才在1994年诊断出患有阿兹海默症这种脑部退化疾病。

川普总统的父亲弗雷德·唐纳德在他80多岁的时候罹患阿尔兹海默症,这个事实导致人们要求总统进行彻底的神经检查。

在本月出版了一部饱受议论的揭露川普执政第一年内幕的新书之后,川普在推特上称自己是“一位非常稳定的天才”。本周早些时候川普会晤了一些参议员,讨论移民立法事务,还让白宫记者和摄像师在会场停留了55分钟。

川普最近一次公开的医疗信息来自于他长期的私人医生哈罗德·鲍恩斯坦。鲍恩斯坦医生2015年宣布,川普是“历来当选总统者当中最健康的一位”。

后来鲍恩斯坦透露说,川普有高胆固醇,开有控制胆固醇的抑制素药物,为了心脏健康每天服用阿司匹林,有时会服用抗生素治疗皮肤红斑痤疮,并且服用非那司提药片促进头发生长。

Trump's Doctor: President Is in 'Excellent Health'

President Donald Trump's physician on Friday declared him in "excellent health" after his first known physical checkup since his inauguration nearly one year ago.

"The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well. The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday," Dr. Ronny Jackson said, in a statement shared by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The examination was conducted at Walter Reed by Jackson, a U.S. Navy rear admiral, who is the president’s personal physician.

Trump spent a little more than three hours at the facility. Since federal health privacy laws also cover the president, it will be up to Trump to decide what information to release.

The checkup for the 71-year-old president would not include a psychiatric evaluation, Sanders earlier told reporters.

While there have been no known significant health events for Trump since his inauguration last January, concerns have been widely expressed about possible neurological disorders.

Trump, who is the oldest president to take office, in public appearances has slurred words and grasped a drinking glass with both hands.

Sanders has brushed aside concerns expressed by reporters about the president’s health as “ridiculous.”

Trump’s physical will be among the most closely scrutinized of any president in decades, perhaps since Ronald Reagan, who was wounded in a 1981 assassination attempt and also suffered from Alzheimer’s disease while still in office, according to his youngest son, Ron Reagan.

The elder Reagan, however, was not diagnosed with the degenerative brain disease until 1994, five years after he left office.

Trump’s father, Fred, developed Alzheimer’s in his 80s, a fact that has prompted calls for the president to undergo a significant neurological exam.

Last October, Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is a member of the president’s Republican Party, told reporters that Trump’s behavior had raised issues about his “leadership, and just his stability, and the lack of desire to be competent on issues and understand.”

Following this month’s publication of a widely discussed, behind-the-scenes book about his first year in office, Trump on Twitter described himself as “a very stable genius” and earlier this week he allowed White House pool reporters and videographers to remain in the room for 55 minutes as he met with a group of senators with whom he was negotiating immigration legislation.

The most recent public medical information about Trump came from his longtime personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who in 2015 declared that his patient would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

Subsequently Bornstein revealed that Trump was prescribed a statin for high cholesterol, takes a daily baby aspirin for heart health, an occasional antibiotic for the skin condition rosacea, and finasteride pills that promote hair growth.
