President Donald Trump slammed the media for 'crossing the line' on speculating about his health after an unannounced visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, last weekend.

Trump said his wife, first lady Melania Trump, asked about his health on his return from the hospital on Saturday.

“I went for a physical, and I came back. My wife said, ‘Darling, are you OK? What’s wrong? Oh. They’re reporting you may have had a heart attack,'” Trump told reporters Tuesday.

“I said I was only there for a very short period of time. I went, did a very routine — just a piece of it, the rest of it takes place in January — did a very routine physical,” Trump said.

"I get greeted with the news that: 'We understand you had a heart attack.'"

Trump referred to the media as “sick” for the speculation.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president was beginning “portions of his routine annual physical exam.”

Trump, who is 73 years old, had his last yearly exam in February.

"The president remains healthy and energetic without complaints," she said, adding that he also visited with Walter Reed staff, and met with the family of a special forces soldier injured in Afghanistan.

The physical exam was less than a year after his last checkup.

But the unannounced visit to the hospital fueled questions about the validity of the White House’s explanation.

The White House issued a memo from the president’s physician late Monday.

Sean Conley, the White House doctor, describing the matter:

“Despite some of the speculation, the president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues."

He added that visit was part of a “planned interim checkup as part of the regular, primary preventative care” the president receives.

“Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurological evaluations,” Conley said.
