On Saturday, President Trump spent over two hours at Walter Reed National Medical Center for what was an unscheduled visit.
On Monday morning White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released a statement saying that the visit was for routine medical tests as part of his annual checkup.
But there were no medical appointments scheduled in President Trump’s diary and it had been less than a year since Trump’s last annual checkup in February.
So not everyone is convinced. A former Secret Service Agent assigned to POTUS tweeted, ‘This does not add up”
This does not add up; the White House Medical Unit has very comprehensive facilities at the White House complex that could easily accommodate most of what is needed in an annual physical. As a fmr USSS Agent assigned POTUS, I have never seen the annual formality occur in stages. https://t.co/32KGdf8yXR

And neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta told CNN the White House version makes no sense:
Sanjay Gupta just said on CNN that most of the blood tests you get for a physical can be done at the White House itself, so it makes no sense for Trump to secretly rush to Walter Reed.

Is the White House hiding something about Trump’s health? Imagine if President Obama or candidate Hillary Clinton did something like this?
