Since the visit was unscheduled, speculation has been rife as to what Trump was actually doing inside the facility, setting off various conspiracy theories on Twitter, with netizens noting that this year’s exam came several months earlier than usual. The visit has been widely described as “mysterious,” and some mainstream media outlets went as far as to report that Trump “was rushed to the hospital.”
While Trump himself attempted to set the record straight, tweeting on Sunday that he “began phase one” of his yearly physical exam, that only fueled speculation. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham then clarified that Trump not only took advantage of “a free weekend” to do some lab tests and a physical, but also met a family of a special forces soldier who was injured in Afghanistan, as well as encountered some staff to express his gratitude for caring after wounded military personnel.
In a statement, Conley said that the trip “was kept off the record” due to “scheduling uncertainties.”
