Days After the White House Doctor Declared Donald Trump 'in Very Good Health', Dick Cheney's Cardiologist Asks 'What Are They Hiding?'

Donald Trump underwent his second annual physical examination as president on February 8th, and the White House doctor, Sean Conley, declared the President "in very good health."


Since then, however, we have not received any specifics about Trump's health, only that "reports and recommendations are being finalized."

So on Tuesday, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, who had served as Vice President Dick Cheney's longtime cardiologist, asked on Twitter:

"What are they hiding?"

This tweet was a follow up to tweets Reiner had posted last week, expressing his skepticism about the release of such a limited statement.

Reiner concluded that "there's obviously data this pt doesn't like."

Many seconded Reiner's concerns.

And even hazarded their own guesses as to what the White House might be hiding:

Reiner's right to ask, of course. Harold Bornstein, the doctor who performed Trump's 2014 physical examination released a glowing report about the then-presidential candidate's health. Four years later, Bornstein admitted that the report hadn't been written by him, but by Trump himself.

Some have speculated that Trump even contributed to Conley's February 8th statement on his health, since the doctor explained in Trumpian fashion that Trump expected to "remain [in very good health] for the duration of his presidency, and beyond."

If Trump is, indeed, the picture of good health, why haven't we seen the data? It certainly makes one wonder what else is in that report.
