The #Girther movement thinks Trump fabricated his health records

I am not a racist says Trump

Former officials from President Barack Obama's administration spoke up to defend White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson as he took heat over the results of President Donald Trump's physical Tuesday.

However, the doctor suggested the president could look forward to good health in the immediate future, adding: "All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency". "I don't know. It's just the way God made him", Jackson said.

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson, who administered Trump's first presidential physical last week, said Trump received a ideal score on a test created to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairment.

Jackson also said Trump should try to lose 10 to 15 pounds - he's at the borderline of obesity - and added that he's trying to encourage the president to start an exercise routine, perhaps with some help from first lady Melania Trump.

"I have absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability", Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, M.D., told reporters during a White House press briefing on Tuesday.

Jackson said Trump received a flawless score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment.

Despite Trump's fast food-filled diet and lack of exercise, Jackson found him to be in "excellent" health.

The president takes a handful of medications including statins, daily aspirin, and two drugs for skin and hair conditions.

Trump has experienced several recent episodes in which he appeared to slur his words, adding to concerns about his health. But Jackson said Trump personally requested the test as he continues to face questions about his mental acuity for office.

'I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that, ' Trump, 71, said during an Oval Office interview.

Cognitive tests like the one USPresident Donald Trump aced give doctors a snapshot of someone's memory and certain other neurologic functions.

Jackson said that after witnessing Trump charge through 14- and 16-hour days, the president's staff would be spent, but he would still be raring to go.

Jackson said the President sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the President overly stressed.

Presidents don't typically sit for cognitive assessments during their periodic physical exams.
