Trump Mentally 'Very Sharp,' in 'Excellent' Health: White House Doctor

White House Hosts A 'Conversation With Women Of America' Amid #MeToo Movement President Trump in excellent health despite high cholesterol and being overweight

The doctor says he's found "no reason whatsoever" to think the President has any issues with his thought process.

Jackson told reporters Trump scored 30/30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which according to its website is a "cognitive screening test created to assist Health Professionals in the detection of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease".

Trump used to the event to take aim at Clinton, the first woman to win a major party presidential nomination.

Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds.

Dr Jackson said Mr Trump is in excellent health and has "incredible genes".

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people briefed on the conversation.

During his appearance, Trump touted low unemployment rates for women and African Americans, and a strong stock market, which he said would have suffered had his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton been elected president.

Despite concerns from the public and reports that have painted a chaotic White House, Jackson said that he has no concerns about the president's stress levels.

Jackson is providing a more detailed readout Tuesday following Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.

Tomlin said he wouldn't say he's opposed to running such plays. "I'm not ready to discuss that at this point". Todd Haley laughed when asked about Ben Roethlisberger wanting to run a quarterback sneak back in October.

"We talked about diet and exercise a lot, he's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we will do both", Jackson said. "I'm guessing people love getting giggles off the idea of him eating cheeseburgers in bed every night", a follow up tweet stated. Presidents are not legally required to get a health checkup but modern presidents do so regularly. As far as a psychological exam. Jackson said the Prez did undergo a cognitive test per the Prez's request and the doc said he's all clear.

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.

One working theory had been that Trump has dentures, but Jackson said that's not the case.

Jackson acknowledged that Trump's diet was high in carbohydrates and fatty foods. David Perdue (Ga.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.) denied Trump had called the places "shithole countries" during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform.

Asked at the White House briefing if any additional cognitive tests should be performed on the president, Jackson said he didn't think so. Jackson said they set a "reasonable goal" of losing 10 to 15 pounds in the coming year and developing a regular fitness routine.

He also said Trump took Crestor, a cholesterol lowering statin; a low dose of aspirin to prevent heart attacks; antibiotics to treat skin rosacea; and Propecia for baldness.

President Donald Trump, according to a White House official, is not expected to attend the event, but could drop by.

An incident involving Trump urgently needing a glass of water and another one in which he slurred his speech are nothing to be alarmed by.
