The US president, who undergoes a wide-ranging physical assessment once a year, put on four pounds over the last 12 months. That means he now weighs 17 stone 5lbs, and with a height of 6ft 3ins his Body Mass Index is 30.4. A BMI over 30 is considered "obese" by America's National Institutes of Health. Mr Trump's BMI last year was just under 30. Sean Conley, the president's doctor, said despite being technically obese Mr Trump, 72, had passed the medical with flying colours. Dr Conley said: "It is my determination that the president remains in very good health overall."
