Trump passes cognitive screen and is 'fit for duty'

Donald Trump is expected to remain physically fit for the duration of his presidency and has "no cognitive issues whatsoever", according to full results from his first medical examination released on Tuesday.

It's designed, he explained, to test for "minimum cognitive function to be able to do important things" and "does not absolutely assess personality issues".

"His health is excellent right now", Jackson said.

Called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, it is created to detect early signs of memory loss and other neurologic functions - and Trump had a ideal score.

Trump has faced several questions about his mental fitness to be president.

Jackson's target for Trump is to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

The President is mentally very sharp and very intact.

"They're going to be increasing the medications, including the cholesterol-lowering medications to try and combat that, but there's no question, by all standards, by all metrics, anyway a doctor or cardiologist will look at it, the president does have heart disease".

Dr Jackson said he prescribed a diet lower in fat and carbohydrates, and exercise. "And I think he wasn't the least bit concerned that he had anything to hide", Jackson said. "I've never known him to repeat himself when he's around me". "He's just like every other president I've taken care of".

He said that while Trump "doesn't have a daily exercise regiment", Trump "has a lot of energy, a lot of stamina".

The president's tests indicated someone in "excellent" health for their age, Dr. Jackson said, although Trump's body mass index indicates he is overweight and just below obese, prompting the doctor to suggest he cut down on fatty foods.

Asked at the White House briefing if any additional cognitive tests should be performed on the president, Jackson said he didn't think so.

'She was an American citizen under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee and she pretended like she didn't remember, she couldn't remember what the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, her boss was saying, ' Booker said. "Some people have great genes".

But he was also taken aback by a joke Jackson made, telling the president he could have lived to 200 years old if his diet had been better over the past two decades. "Many Republicans are willing to have a DACA fix", he said. "I would just assume has led to some of his success over the years, he has a very unique ability to just get up in the morning and reset", the doctor said.
