Doctor says Trump's health excellent, has no cognitive issues

Apparently, Trump also passed with flying colors: He scored 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is created to detect early signs of memory loss and other neurologic functions. That hotel, just blocks from the White House, was the most popular Trump property, accounting for more than half the 64 events.

Jackson said he hadn't planned to do a cognitive exam on Trump, but the president asked him to conduct "a test, or some type of screen" to assess his abilities.

Asked how Trump could have scored so well despite a high-fat diet, affinity for fast food and lack of exercise, Jackson credited the president's genes.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment that Trump took includes remembering a list of spoken words; listening to a list of random numbers and repeating them backward; naming as many words that begin with, say, the letter F as possible within a minute; accurately drawing a cube; and describing concrete ways that two objects - like a train and a bicycle - are alike.

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

"There's no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues", Jackson said.

The doctor speculates that Trump requested the exam in an attempt to beat back the narrative of the past few weeks that he is mentally unfit for office. And, on a day-to-day basis it has been my experience that the president - is very sharp, he is very articulate when he speaks to me. "I've found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes", he added.

Then-President-elect Donald Trump moved a year ago to give up direct management of the company and turn it over to his sons, but he kept his financial ties through a trust that allows him to continue withdrawing funds.

Because of the Sudafed, Dr. Jackson said - as Sarah Huckabee Sanders has before - Trump's throat was "dried up".

Vickey, who said he was involved in helping get a treadmill installed on Air Force One for George W. I could see Bannon huddling and trading water-cooler talk with other people he worked closely with.

The White House doctor would like to see Trump lose 10-15 pounds. If I didn't watch what I eat, I wouldn't have the cardiac and overall health that he has.

Trump had his first physical last Friday. Jackson says Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds.

He was tapped to be a physician for the White House during former President George W. Bush's tenure in 2006, while Jackson was deployed in Iraq, according to his Navy biography.

Trump has said that he has never smoked or imbibed alcohol, which Jackson said has contributed to the president's good health.

President Donald Trump's overall health "is excellent" and he did "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening.

Jackson reports that the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds - three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016.

A fuller readout of President Donald Trump's health following his first medical check-up is expected later Tuesday.

Because Trump has blustered about his health before, there had been suspicions among some critics that the White House might hide evidence that he is mentally or physically unfit for office.

On Friday, after the initial assessment, Jackson proclaimed the president to be in good health, and on Tuesday he revealed Trump's weight.
