“We need to promote healthy lifestyles for America’s youth,” Ivanka Trump, a White House adviser, tweeted. “In a recent survey, 9.5 million U.S. children reported that they did NOT once participate in any of over 100 sports or activities listed.”

Retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling was quick to respond that there is an existing council to encourage healthy lifestyles that has stalled under her father’s administration.


“Ummm...there’s this thing called the President’s Council on Fitness, Sport, and Nutrition. Been around 60 years,” Hertling tweeted on Sunday. “Used to have 25 appointees...I was one of them. @MichelleObama helped & generated momentum in this area. No one is on the Council now. @FitnessGov. Check it out.”

Hertling was appointed to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition in 2013 under former President Obama. 

Last year was the 60th anniversary of the council, which was established under former President Eisenhower.
