A little bit of this and that, and running to the building next door

In an interview with Reuters, US President Donald Trump revealed what he considered an exercise regimen and honestly, nobody is surprised. Okay, maybe calling it a regimen is a bit of a stretch.
“I get exercise I mean I walk,”
“I run over to a building next door. I get more exercise than people think” is what the 71-year old president says.
I mean we didn’t think he did any exercise to begin with. Though, he also mentions that he gets exercise from playing golf when he’s not riding the golf cart around. Apparently walking would just leave him on the course longer than he prefers. “I don’t want to spend the time,” he says.
Despite his doctor’s not-so-subtle implication of potential heart disease, don’t expect Trump to be hitting the gym any time soon. “A lot of people go to the gym and they’ll work out for two hours and all. I’ve seen people… then they get their new knees when they’re 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things. I don’t have those problems,” he says.
Though he is apparently quite impressive on the treadmill as he had amazed some medical staff. “I was on a treadmill for the first time actually in quite a while, and it was at a very steep angle, and I was there for a very long time,” Trump says. “They were surprised. And they said, ‘Well you can stop now, that’s amazing.’ And I said, ‘I can go much longer than this if you want me to.’” Not quite sure if they’re impressed for the reason that he thinks, but kudos for even getting on I suppose.
He’s made it quite apparent that he’s not about to change any time soon. He might make an exception with diet as he says that the White House can possibly serve smaller portions and lessen fat.
“I’ve always been more of a believer in diet ‘cause I‘m strong, you know? I hit the ball far. I mean, I‘m strong, physically,” he says.
