Trump in 'Excellent' Physical, Cognitive Health, Doctor Says

TEST FOR DEMENTIA Trump is in good health condition but needs to shed weight doctor says

Many at the White House are hopeful that this will put to rest any questions about the president's mental stability despite the obviousness of the fact that Donald Trump possesses a temperament that is much different than those that have held the office before him.

The White House doctor released the results of President Donald Trump's comprehensive medical exam on Tuesday which included a flawless score on a cognitive assessment.

Dr Jackson's highly-anticipated report came after the USA leader carried out a physical examination last Friday.

Jackson told reporters that Trump, "would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates", and said that he hopes to start a fitness plan".

In response to speculation that the president has mental health problems, Jackson said, "In my opinion, that s just tabloid psychiatry".

Jackson also said that Trump's cardiac health is incredible, but the president's cholesterol is rather high and the president's medical team is aiming to reduce it.

Before President Donald Trump's physical examination on Friday, Dr. Ronny Jackson had decided he wasn't going to perform a cognitive assessment.

Trump, 71, is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 239 pounds, Jackson said, which is classified as overweight and is 1 pound away from being obese, according to the NIH's body mass index calculator. A NY driver's license issued in 2012 listed him as 6 feet 2 inches tall, which would put him just into the obese category.

Dr. Ronny Jackson - great name, by the way - spent four hours examining Trump last week, and he had nothing but positive things to report about a man who, if we're being perfectly honest, looks like total shit.

If you were to ask 100 people to name the concerns that they have about Trump as president, not one of them would mention his physical health.

Bennett's Jackson then said that it was in his "expert medical opinion" that the President has "a rockin' bod with a flawless amount of cushion for the pushing". "I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old", the doctor went on.

"It's called genetics. I don't know".

Trump said in the Reuters interview that he already gets exercise.

In general, patients with good or average memory forget one of the five words and can still be within the normal range, said Dr. James Mastrianni, an expert in memory disorders and other neurodegenerative conditions at the University of Chicago Medicine.

The physician said he would increase Mr Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs.
