Washington, Feb 16: US President Donald Trump has given enough glimpses of his love for fast food, and now it has been revealed that despite eyeing a weight lesser than by 10-15 pounds (4.5-7 kg), the man has become heavier over the past one year and is now officially an obese man.

The 72-year-old (the oldest president ever to take office) is 6 feet 3 inches tall and with a body mass index of above 30, he is obese. Last year, Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) last year.

However, Conley said the president was in "very good health" and was expected to continue to do so for the remaining period of his presidency and beyond it. No other details were released though, American media reports said.

A team of 11 experts examined the president for four hours at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, District of Columbia, and Conley's remarks came after that.
