On Friday, President Donald Trump will undergo his first known physical exam since taking office.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says a readout of the exam will be made publicly available soon after the exam is done. But ultimately Trump can decide what information to release, if any at all, because of federal health privacy laws.

Based on previous presidential exams, the readout could include information about Trump's body mass index, past illnesses and current medications. It could also include information about his blood pressure, cholesterol levels, eyes, skin and heart.

The White House says the 71-year-old president's exam will not include a psychiatric evaluation.
