What's the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test Trump took?

- U.S. President Donald Trump is defending himself anew against accusations that he is racist, this time after recent disparaging comments about Haiti and African nations.

The cognitive test, known as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), is created to screen for mild mental decline. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?"

Some hoped Trump's Friday's medical evaluation would include a cognitive or psychiatric assessment of the 71-year-old president.

But Jackson, who served as the White House physician since 2013, found allies in former Obama officials who called him a "saint" and "a phenomenal doctor".

Jackson, who occupies an office near Trump's and speaks with the president frequently, characterized Trump's overall health as excellent, despite his well-known attraction to fast food and aversion to exercise. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

Ronny Jackson appeared before the press to give the details of President Trump's latest physical.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday aligned himself solidly with conservative Republicans on immigration, criticizing a proposed bipartisan deal as "horrible" on USA border security and "very, very weak" on reforms for the legal immigration system.

Trump said in the Reuters interview that he already gets exercise.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump had longtime physician Dr. Harold Bornstein release a letter in which he wrote that Trump "unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

'The answer is he has incredibly good genes, it's just the way God made him. Trump has no heart disease and no family history of it.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming USA president.

Men who stand at 6-foot-3 and weigh 239 pounds are not created equally.

Trump's blood pressure was 122 over 74, and his total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended. Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protected Status nations, including Haiti.

"The president is mentally very sharp", Jackson said.

The four-hour medical did not flag any physical or mental health issues and indicated Trump would likely be able to execute the remainder of his presidency.

According to White House doctor Ronny Jackson, Trump scored "exceedingly well" (30 out of 30) on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment and has "no cognitive issues whatsoever".

Dr Jackson's comments, reported by The Telegraph, came after he performed Mr Trump's first White House medical.

Trump's vision is 20/30, with a corrected visual acuity of 20/20, according to the report.

Trump blamed Durbin for leaking the language he used in the meeting, a disclosure that prompted critics to denounce Trump as a racist, an accusation he denied.
