Following the Tuesday release of the results of President Donald Trump’s recent physical exam, a Hollywood director offered to donate $100,000 to a charity of Trump’s choice if the president would weigh himself on an “accurate” scale observed by an “impartial medical professional.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn tweeted Tuesday, “I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump’s favorite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us. For real.”

Gunn posted a second tweet in which he included a photo of MLB star Albert Pujols alongside Trump, comparing their physiques.

On Tuesday, the White House released the results of Trump’s first physical exam as president.

Trump’s White House doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, who also served under former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, declared that Trump is in “excellent” health. Jackson answered questions at Tuesday’s White House press briefing for approximately an hour, The Hill reported.

According to Jackson, the president’s “overall health is excellent.”

“His cardiac performance during his physical exam was very good, he continues to enjoy the significant, long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol,” Jackson said.

Jackson concluded, “All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency.”
