President Donald Trump has an unusual theory about exercise

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - (WDRB) -- President Donald Trump doesn't like to exercise, and he apparently doesn't think he needs to exercise. 

According to an article in the New Yorker, President Trump has an usual theory.  He reportedly thinks that people are like batteries. They are born with a finite amount of energy and that exercise depletes it. 

That's why the 70-year-old is rarely seen exercising except for an occasional round of golf. 

Most doctors disagree with the president's approach. The medical community's generally-held belief is that exercise is good for you. 

It's worth noting that President Trump's personal physician declared him to be in excellent health last fall. 

In a 2015 New York Times magazine profile of Trump, he said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign. 

'''All my friends who work out all the time, they're going for knee replacements, hip replacements - they're a disaster,'' he said. The article said he exerts himself fully by standing in front of an audience for an hour.
