The White House physician is scheduled to deliver a report today on Trump’s health. So, how much will we learn? Potentially a lot, but this won’t be the smoking gun Trump’s fiercest critics might have been hoping for.

What to watch for: The official report from the White House usually gives the public more actual information than the vague assurances we’ve gotten so far that Trump is in “excellent health.”

  • It usually includes the president’s height, weight, blood pressure, resting heart rate, cholesterol levels, and a list of medications he’s taking.
  • All of that would be new information about Trump, and will be especially interesting given the reports about his relatively poor diet and lack of physical activity.
  • The president’s physician generally does not perform (or at least, does not release the results of) any cognitive tests.

Texas authorities have issued a warning amid concerns that the water supply in the southeast of the state may contain the brain-eating amoeba naegleria fowleri following the death of a 6-year-old boy.

Details: The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a "do not use" water alert Friday for eight cities, along with the Clemens and Wayne Scott Texas Department of Criminal Justice corrections centers and the Dow Chemical plant in Freeport. This was later lifted for all places except for Lake Jackson, which issued a disaster declaration Saturday.
