Doctor: Trump is healthy, did well on cognitive test

At an extended press conference Tuesday, White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson announced the results of the presidential check-up and answered questions from reporters.

That person was Ziad Nasreddine - who designed the test.

"I told the President that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200 years old", Jackson said, eliciting laughter from reporters.

The 10-minute exam is created to detect mild cognitive impairment, such as dementia, generally in older patients. Jackson said they set a "reasonable goal" of losing 10 to 15 pounds in the coming year and developing a regular fitness routine.

Trump scored a flawless 30 out of 30.

"As far as I know, no president has had a cognitive assessment as president of the United States", he said.

"When I asked him specifically about that test, he did then concede that, in fact, the president does have heart disease".

On Monday, Trump claimed Durbin is misquoting him.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency... the president's overall health is excellent", said Navy Rear Adm Dr Ronny Jackson, who shared the results of Trump's health report. He also gave physicals to President Barack Obama and will now examine President Donald Trump.

"The president is mentally very sharp", Jackson said. Later, Trump attempted to clarify matters by tweeting he was a "very stable genius".

Nasreddine cautioned that his exam doesn't test for everything.

It's good at measuring age-related cognitive decline early and precisely. He also points out that it can be tricked by someone with a very high level of education.

Finally, delayed recall is tested and the doctor will circle back to the list of words they told the patient in the memory test and the patient is asked to remember as many words as possible. It has limitations, " he said.

Cognitive function refers to memory, speech, reading comprehension and the ability to learn new information. Meaning organization, planning, abstract thinking. "It does not absolutely assess personality issues". And one Arab-Canadian couldn't be prouder. Nasreddine came to Canada as a teenager with his family during the civil war in his homeland, Lebanon.

Believe it or not, Trump personally requested for this test. In 2013, it was 98, ' he said, based on the President's medical records. "They were surprised. And they said, 'Well you can stop now, that's incredible.' And I said, 'I can go much longer than this if you want me to'". "He's just like every other president I've taken care of". "In my practice, I notice that dietary patterns tend to shift somewhat with age, and as people get older, the calories that were once spent on lean protein might now be spent on carbohydrates or fats".
