The US President and the First Lady Melania Trump will travel to Britain for a three-day visit from Dec 2 to Dec 4 and will meet Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace which will tie into their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments.

President Donald Trump will try to convince USA allies that they should increase defense spending when he attends a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders next month in London, the White House said Friday.

Grisham said Trump had taken advantage of "a free weekend here in Washington" to complete portions of his annual physical in anticipation of "a very busy 2020".

The appointment didn't appear on the president's public schedule, as was the case for his physicals last year and this year.

It was the president's ninth visit to the hospital since taking office.

Trump, who has confounded health experts with his penchant for junk food and avoidance of strenuous exercise, weighed 243 pounds (110 kg), the report at that time said.

The February checkup showed he had put on some pounds and was now officially considered obese.

"I am happy to announce the President of the United States is in very good health and I anticipate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency, and beyond", Conley wrote afterward.

Trump doesn't drink alcohol or smoke.

After the president arrived at Walter Reed, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham released a statement explaining that it was more convenient for the president to get parts of the physical out of the way before the new year.
