When asked about President Trump’s vital signs like heart rate, blood pressure and temperature, his doctor Dr. Sean Conley on Saturday: “So his heart rate is in the 70s and 80s. His blood pressure has stayed where it is, where it was historically during our physical exam. You know, 110 to 120, systolic is great. It never moved. I didn’t have any concerns there. “
Conley didn’t reveal any details about Trump’s fever and said during the briefing, “I’d rather not give specific numbers, but he did, but he had a fever Thursday through Friday and hasn’t had any since Friday morning.”
Conley didn’t say whether Trump was taking antipyretic drugs.
When asked why Trump was transferred to Walter Reed, Conley replied, “Because he is the President of the United States.”
After the briefing, a source familiar with the President’s health told White House pool reporters, “The President’s vital signs for the past 24 hours have been very worrying and the next 48 hours will be critical to his upkeep. We are still not clear way to a full recovery. “
