Stephanie Grisham posted the physician memo discussing President Donald Trump’s secret unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center.
Trump, 73, went to Walter Reed over the weekend for what ABC reports to be “phase one” of the president’s annual physical.
Immediately after people learned of Trump’s unannounced visit, the speculation picked up right away. Some people on social media said he was poisoned, some said it was angina, and people ran away with their own versions of stories – none of which were proven, obviously. Nothing more than hypothetical situations without evidence.
The White House wanted to squash some of those speculations by posting the one-page health memo from the physician.
Part of it said, as quoted by ABC, “Despite some of the speculation, the president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues,” Dr. Sean Conley said in the memo released Monday night. “Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurological evaluations.”
Grisham shared the full page memo for the public.

ABC also stated:
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement following the checkup that “the president remains healthy and energetic without complaints” and pointed to his “vigorous rally performances” as evidence of his energy levels.
Conley did reveal that the president’s cholesterol level is now 165, which is considered within a healthy range — down from 196 earlier this year.
The president’s trip to Walter Reed on Saturday stirred speculation in part because of how it differed from typical presidential check-ups.
At this time, nothing else is known and anything else is just a mystery or hypothetical conversation.
Without evidence, we simply cannot say anything else happened because we can’t prove it.
However, there certainly are some scenarios that are quite interesting to ponder.
