White House Doctor Says Trump Is In 'Excellent' Physical, Cognitive Health

Dr Ronny Jackson, who told a White House press conference he didn't believe the president needed a cognitive test, said Trump's flawless score indicated that "The president is mentally very sharp, very intact".

Trump asked his physician, Dr Ronny Jackson, to add a cognitive screening test to the exam, and authorized him to release a battery of data from the tests.

"In summary, the president's overall health is excellent", Dr Ronny Jackson said.

The president is "very sharp" and "very articulate" in their conversations and does not repeat himself, he said.

The doctor deemed Trump in "excellent health" last Friday and provided details of the President's medical exam during a briefing on Tuesday.

Dr Jackson said: "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both".

Jackson said that based on Trump's lab results and cardiac tests, he is "very healthy" and he expects the president to continue to be healthy for the rest of his term and even in a second term. It has never been done on any other president he has tended to over the years, Jackson said.

Antoine Griezmann: Barcelona deny deal for Atletico Madrid star in OFFICIAL statement
Barcelona have issued a statement in response to reports linking them to Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann . Barcelona added it had "objections" to the reports "and reiterates its full respect" for Atletico Madrid .

"It's not a diagnostic test, but it's pretty sensitive in picking up subtle changes in cognition", things involving memory, attention and language but not mental health issues, said Dr. Ranit Mishori, professor of family medicine at Georgetown University, who performs these types of routine physicals.

On Friday, the president was examined by military doctors at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, in tests that were said to have gone "exceptionally well".

"I told the President that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200 years old", Jackson said, eliciting laughter from reporters. He'd like the president to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

"He is a male and he is in his 70s and he is overweight, borderline obese, and he has high cholesterol".

However, Dr Jackson said that Mr Trump, 71, could benefit from a lower-fat diet and more exercise. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

Trump also takes aspirin daily for his heart, propecia for hair loss, a daily vitamin and an occasional cream for rosacea, a skin condition.

Excellent may have been the word of the day for Jackson.
