He said that he began phase one of his yearly physical and will complete next year.

“#BreakingNews Sources tell me from Walter Reed the President was being checked out for chest discomfort. No other information is available at this time,” Andrew Vernon wrote on Twitter on the evening of November 16, 2019. Vernon’s Twitter page profile says that he is “President & CEO. Opinion Contributor @thehill. @ColumbiaMSPH Alum & @UMaine Alum. @USArmy Veteran. #GoHabsGo.”

The tweet by Andrew Vernon started an avalanche of comments on social media and other news sources are calling Trump’s trip to Walter Reed unusual.

Jonathan Wackrow, a CNN law enforcement analyst, who wrote about the White House statements on the president’s trip to Walter Reed, “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.”

CNN reported that the exam was not listed on Trump’s schedule. The President also allegedly spent two hours at Walter Reed.

The White House officially confirmed that President Trump did visit Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The White House said that the President was healthy and went to the hospital to “begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed.”

The New York post has called the visit a “surprise.”

Vernon describes himself as a “career employee at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for seven years. Vernon is principal for Veteran and Military Affairs at Andrew Vernon & Associates. He holds a master’s degree in Education from the University of Maine, and a master’s degree in Health Administration from the Columbia University Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health. You can find him on Twitter: @Vernon_AndrewJ.”

Vernon has previously tweeted things critical of the President.

CNN reported that Trump went to Walter Reed for a “quick exam.”

“Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham wrote.

 “After a quick exam and labs, the President is headed back downtown. The President remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week,” Grisham was quoted saying.

As previously reported, Trump was declared as healthy after his last physical exam in February of 2019.

“I am happy to announce the president of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency, and beyond,” Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, wrote then.
