But as many reports have pointed out, unless he grew an inch since becoming president, Trump had normally been marking his height on his New York State driver's license as six feet two inches tall, which would both fit him squarely into he category of obese - and i would also make him a fibber about his height.
Presidential physician Ronny Jackson answers question about Donald Trump's health after the president's annual physical during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington, DCWhat did Dr Jackson say about Trump's health?
In the book, sources close to the president and the administration had said that Trump was prone to repetition and that aides regularly questioned his mental stability.
Some are actually questioning the expertise of Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, a respected physician who has served as White House doctor for 10 years. Dr. Jackson gave Trump a clean bill of health, but some experts raised concerns about his high cholesterol levels, indicating they put him at risk of a heart attack.
Although reporters seemed skeptical, he said he found "no reason whatsoever" to think the president had any issues with his thought processes.
Trump is the first president to be elected without any government or military experience.
Trump even demonstrated above-average exercise capacity despite his famous aversion to physical activity other than golf, Jackson said.
Jackson reported that the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds, three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016.
"Tabloid psychiatry" is how Jackson described outside diagnoses of the president's mental health by those who haven't examined him.

President Donald Trump's doctor said Tuesday he's confident that Mr. Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".
So, Trump is just one pound shy of being considered obese.
"He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", he joked. "I don't know", Jackson said.
"His cardiac performance during his physical exam was very good, he continues to enjoy the significant, long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", Jackson said.
