"This is a disgrace to an office with a great tradition of professionalism. Just another institution turned into a joke by a President determined to make anyone willing to submit an instrument of his lies."No doctor can predict someone's future health.

Ronny Jackson, who also served as Obama's physician, wrote in last year's report.Jackson did note that Trump would "benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates and from a routine exercise regimen" and that he was currently taking medication to control elevated cholesterol. But the report wrapped up by saying, "All clinical data indicates that the President is currently very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency."Last year, Trump weighed 239 pounds, had a resting heart rate of 68 beats per minute, blood pressure of 122/74, and total cholesterol of 223 (HDL 67, LDL 143), as Business Insider previously reported. A stress test found above-average exercise capacity and a cognitive assessment was normal.This year's details on Trump's weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels have not yet been released.SEE ALSO:Inside Trump's daily routine, which includes 3 to 4 hours of sleep, 'executive time,' and no breakfastDON'T MISS:Trump's childhood home on the outskirts of New York City is for sale for $2.9 million ' take a look inside the 5-bedroom houseJoin the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: Meet the three women who married Donald Trump
