Donald Trump in excellent health, White House doctor insists

Donald Trump in excellent health, White House doctor insists

Trump was revealed to be overweight but his personal physician insisted his heart exam was normal.

Jackson said he would increase Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs. The White House medical team chose theMontreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), which was designed as a rapid screening tool for mild cognitive dysfunction - a loss of memory and clear thinking ability that sometimes precedes dementia.

But in a press conference this morning, Dr Jackson said the President's heart was healthy, his teeth were healthy, and he did "exceedingly well" on a hard cognitive exam. The 10-minute exam is created to detect mild cognitive impairment, such as dementia, generally in older patients.

"It's not a diagnostic test, but it's pretty sensitive in picking up subtle changes in cognition", things involving memory, attention and language but not mental health issues, said Dr. Ranit Mishori, professor of family medicine at Georgetown University, who performs these types of routine physicals. 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. "And, I have never known him to repeat himself around me", Dr Jackson said.

"We picked one of the ones that was a little longer, a little more involved", Jackson said.

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

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

Trump, 71, is 6'3, weighs 108 pounds and has normal cardiac health, Jackson said. "10 to 15 pounds".

"He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", he said.

Still, Jackson said Trump acknowledged he'd be healthier if he lost a few pounds by exercising more and eating better.

Trump has agreed to get rid of 4.5-6 kg of body fat in the next one year by combining diet, exercise and medication. Jackson said that Trump's cholesterol level is now elevated, so he is increasing Trump's medication.

Jackson said that he spoke with Trump about why the president may have audibly slurred his words during a speech on December 6 and asked an ear, nose and throat specialist to look into it. Jackson pronounced Obama to be in "excellent" - even "improved" - health.

"It's called genetics", Jackson said, shrugging.

You know, I told the president that if he had healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old.

She says: "I would just like to say I do clearly abhor violence in all of its forms".

He does need to watch his weight, however, and do more exercise, he said. "So I'm very confident at this particular stage that he has nothing like that going on".

"I would say he sleeps four to five hours a night, and he's probably been that way his whole life".

The key message, the official said: Emphasize that the United States has a "deep respect" for people from Africa and that the USA relationship with any country is deeper than any one comment.

The South Carolina Republican says White House chief of staff John Kelly is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff".

But the 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on the test, Jackson said, receiving a ideal score.
