President Donald Trump’s doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, characterized the president’s health as “excellent,” but like the majority of Americans, Trump is overweight and he doesn’t get enough exercise.
The President weighs 239 pounds. That means he’s gained 3 pounds over the last year, according to his last official records. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Trump had a body mass index, or BMI, that puts him in the “overweight” range, according to the National Institutes of Health’s online BMI calculator.
Being overweight is simply defined as a person whose weight is higher than what is considered a normal weight adjusted for height. The President is one pound shy of being considered obese, according to these calculations.
Jackson said he will work with Trump to design an exercise routine and eating program that will help him get a better handle on his weight. The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.
