Additionally, the President had an echocardiogram of his heart, as well as a stress test, both was regarded as normal. Although it was not part of the official medical records that were released yesterday, after further questioning, Jackson also revealed that Trump underwent a coronary calcium CT scan as part of his routine physical exam.
