Trump doing fine: Doctor

Trump doing fine: Doctor

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson speaks to reporters about President Trump's health during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington on Tuesday. Trump scored 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test.

A doctor asks the patient to say as many words that begin with a single letter given by the doctor.

Trump thanked Jackson, and told him to say hi to his brothers, Jermaine and Tito.

Ronny Jackson's announcement that Trump is "healthy" but needs to lose 10 to 15 pounds and lower his cholesterol, people were not convinced.

"I think he saw doing the physical as an opportunity to put some of that to rest", Jackson said. Others feel there are "weightier" things to worry about.as one man said, "I care more about mental health".

Dr. Bandy Lee, a forensic psychiatrist who has called for the president to have an emergency mental health screening and warned that he could wipe out the human species, said that the MOCA was not the test she believed he needed.

Trump is now taking several types of daily medication, Jackson wrote, including aspirin; Rosuvastatin to lower cholesterol; Finasteride to aid in the prevention of male pattern hair loss; Ivermectin to treat rosaccea when needed; and a multivitamin product. The president has an above average capacity for physical exercise.

Jackson said he "found no reason whatsoever to think the President has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes".

Outside doctors - who have not directly examined Trump - questioned that conclusion, saying the combination of Trump's weight and the cardiac test results raised more concerns than Jackson's comments would reflect. The intrigue over the President's body mass was fuelled by people sharing a series of photos of athletes who are also said to weigh around 239lb.

The Emmy Award-winning chief medical correspondent reported that Trump's heart scan score has also continued to increase since 2009.

"If he had some type of mental, cognitive issue ... this test is sensitive enough".

"That's just the way God made him", Dr Jackson said.

The President himself decided what to make public from his exam, in accordance with medical privacy rules.

"We checked everything out and everything was normal", he said.

Cognitive decline is a natural effect of aging, and Donald Trump is the oldest President in American history.

Reporters peppered Jackson with questions about his tweeting and television-watching habits and how much sleep he gets a night. "I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old", the doctor went on.
