White House Physician Details Trump's 'Excellent Health'

President Donald Trump

The doctor who cared for President Obama and serves as President Trump's White House physician said Tuesday that the president received a ideal score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment, which the military doctor said was evidence that Trump does not suffer from mental issues that prevent him from functioning in office.

White House doctor Ronny Jackson said President Donald Trump urged him to take a cognitive test as a part of his annual physical.

Trump's physician Dr. Ronny Jackson delivered an extensive review of the president's health to the White House press corps Tuesday in which he characterized it overall as "excellent".

Trump also takes aspirin daily to prevent heart disease, a multivitamin and applies a cream called ivermectin, as needed, to treat skin condition rosacea, Jackson said.

US President Donald Trump underwent an official White House health test following media speculation about his fitness and well-being.

Regardless, he would benefit from exercise and dietary changes, which Jackson said he will include in Trump's routine moving forward. "And I think he wasn't the least bit concerned that he had anything to hide", Jackson said.

Jackson said the president sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the president overly stressed. He said the president scored 30/30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which he described as a thorough, comprehensive exam, which the president did "exceedingly well on".

Jackson said Trump had a ideal score on the test.

"Most of us could lose a couple of pounds", he said in an interview with Reuters reporters Jeff Mason and Steve Holland.

When Jackson served under former President Barack Obama, Jackson shared a "detailed summary" of his medical assessment including the then president's vitals, and a lengthy account of physical tests and laboratory results.

"He has a lot of energy and a lot of stamina", Dr Jackson said.

The president would like to lose 10 to 15 pounds, according to the physician. Jackson said he hopes to bring down the LDL or "bad cholesterol" score with diet, exercise and statin medication. When real doctors, as opposed to fake ones on TV, examine him, the assessment is that he is in "excellent" health.

Queried by a skeptical reporter how Trump could be in such great shape for his age despite a reputation for frequently enjoying unhealthy fast foods, such as hamburgers and fried chicken, Jackson replied that "some people just have great genes".

But Trump might actually be obese, as his height has been disputed in the past.

Cardiologists took note of Trump's LDL cholesterol level being 143, well above the ideal score of 100 or less. He also reported that Trump did receive a cognitive assessment, showing no impairment.

Dr. Jackson's comments seemed selective to some.
