Trump clears medical test: Doctor administered Montreal Cognitive Assessment

President Donald Trump accompanied by House Majority Leader Kevin Mc Carthy of Calif. speaks to members of the media as they arrive for a dinner at Trump International Golf Club in in West Palm Beach Fla. Sunday Jan. 14 2018

"He actively asked me to include that in it so we did", Dr Jackson told reporters on Tuesday.

"I've found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes", Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy, said.

Jackson estimated that Trump only gets 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night.

Before Jackson spoke, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spent several minutes explaining why his assessment should be trusted.

Jackson said Trump had performed well on a cognitive assessment, which the president had requested.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting".

Jackson reported that the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds - three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016. That indicates he is borderline obese, with a body mass index of 29.9, just below the level of 30 that qualifies as obese according to guidelines used by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "How many times do you want me to say that?" "And I would say that's the category he falls in right now".

Whenever anyone asks me what it's like working at the Trump White House, I think about that day and the reality show that now consumes the world's most recognisable place.

"He has a history of elevated cholesterol, and is now on a low dose of Crestor".

The White House chefs, Jackson said, are now cooking for him a much healthier diet. "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".

"It took significantly longer to complete, and the president did extremely well on it", Jackson said. "Some people have just great genes".

Revealing the results of President Trump's check up, White House Doctor Ronny Jackson said he had scored a flawless 30/30 in the cognitive tests.

As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a US official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.

The medicinal checkup additionally came in the midst of reestablished worries about Trump's mental wellbeing.

President Donald Trump's doctor has prescribe that he lose some weight, yet said that the president is in magnificent physical and psychological well-being something else.

Accounts suggest that when Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with that status were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the President responded: "Haitians?" Such exams are not usually part of presidential physicals.

His blood pressure, resting heart rate and "ejection fraction" - a measure of the amount of blood his heart pumps with each contraction - are all in the normal range, Jackson said. Days before last week's exam, the president defended his mental ability in a series of tweets as a "very stable genius" who was "like, really smart."

Dr Jackson revealed last week that the check-up at the Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, had gone "exceptionally well", adding that he was "enthusiastic" about sharing further details.
