Donald Trump has shown no abnormal signs following a cognitive test and is in "excellent" health, the White House physician said after the 71-year-old United States president underwent his first medical check-up amidst speculation about his mental abilities.
"The president's overall health is excellent", said Jackson, who predicted Trump would remain healthy for the duration of his presidency despite a diet heavy on fast food and an exercise regime limited to weekend golf outings.
Still, Jackson said Trump acknowledged he'd be healthier if he lost a few pounds by exercising more and eating better.
Jackson gave Trump's height as 6 feet 3 inches, and his weight as 239 pounds.
Jackson held an extraordinary news conference - on Trumps insistence - on Tuesday at the White House that lasted for about an hour.
Wisconsin Upset Raises Hopes for Democrats in 2018 Races
In Iowa's 6th House District, Democrat Rita DeJong won 44 percent of the vote; in 2016, the party's nominee won just 35 percent. Adam Jarchow in Wisconsin's 10th Senate District on Tuesday, the latest in a recent series of Democratic victories nationwide.
Asked about a much-discussed episode in which the president seemed to slur his words during a televised speech in December about the Middle East, Jackson said it might had been caused by Sudafed, a medicine for nasal congestion.
One working theory had been that Trump has dentures, but Jackson said that's not the case.
But the 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on the test, Jackson said, receiving a ideal score. Ahead of the exam, the White House said that tests for mental acuity would not be included.
"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact", Jackson said, adding that Trump is "fit for duty" following a question about the 25th Amendment, a constitutional mechanism that includes a provision for removing an unfit president from office.
Will it be a clean bill of health for Donald Trump? . "Equally important, without this evaluation, the American people will not have a clear understanding about the health and well-being of the President, which is essential for Americans to know of any president".
Rs. 100 Crore demonetized currency seized from Kanpur Home
On Wednesday Kanpur Police raid at the premises of a resident of Kanpur and collected a huge amount from his locked room. Following a tip-off, the SSP formed several teams headed by SP (East) Anurag Arya and SP (West) Gaurav Grover.
Undergoing this physical is voluntary, and Trump can pick and choose what the public hears about his health.
On Trump's own time, they will conduct a baseline hearing test, which they didn't get to on Friday, and Dr. Jackson noted that a colonoscopy was deferred until the next exam (Trump's last one was in 2013).
The test that the press - and later wannabe social media pundits - keyed in on ad nauseum was the one Dr. Jackson had never meant to administer.
Trump does take Crestor to lower his cholesterol, daily aspirin for heart health, Propecia for male pattern baldness, a skin cream for rosacea and a daily multivitamin. Asked several times what the workouts might consist of, he demurred, but said that Trump "would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates" and an exercise regimen.
