‘Conspiracy Theories Really Need To Stop’: WH Press Sec Addresses Trump’s Walter Reed Visit

President Trump visited the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Saturday afternoon as part of a routine check-up for his annual physical exam.

The president shared the visit over Twitter where he said he took the time to also visit “a great family of a young man under major surgery.”

“Those are truly some of the best doctors anywhere in the world,” Trump also said.

“Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year,” he added.

ABC News reported Trump’s appointment “was not on the president’s weekend public schedule, in contrast to Trump’s 2018 and 2019 physicals, which were both announced ahead of time.” This seemingly unusual detail caused several people on the Left and in mainstream media to go wild with conspiracies that Trump was ill or was lying about the medical check-up:

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham quickly set the record straight amid all the conspiratorial talk:

ABC News adds:

Grisham did not explain why the visit had not been disclosed in advance or specify which tests Trump received. She later said the White House will not release results of the visit until Trump completes all aspects of his annual physical.

It was unclear when medical staff received notice of the visit. Walter Reed spokeswoman Sandy Dean said the hospital does not comment on patients.

This was Trump’s 9th visit to Walter Reed as president.

While he has typically taken the Marine One helicopter to the Maryland facility, he traveled by presidential motorcade on the clear-skied afternoon in the beltway.
