"All clinical data indicates that the President is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency", he continued.
Dr. Harold Bornstein's summary included Trump's height (6 feet 3 inches) and weight (236 pounds), cholesterol (HDL 63, LDL 94, triglycerides 61), blood pressure (116/70), blood sugar (99) and normal results from liver, thyroid, heart and colon exams. "I had no concerns about his cognitive ability ... the reason that we did the cognitive assessment is because the president asked me to do it".
Trump also has no heart disease and no family history of it. The first year of his presidency has seen many ridiculous moments that led many to believe that the Republican billionaire was 'mentally unfit to lead'.
The Montreal Cognitive Assessment, on which Trump scored a ideal 30 out of 30, can help detect Alzheimer's disease as well as mild cognitive impairment, but is not the same as a psychological examination.
Dr Jackson admitted that he would work with the President in the coming year to improve his diet and increase the amount of physical activity he does, although he said that he considers being on the golf course to be exercise. "I think the main thing we focused on with regards to lifestyle changes are diet and exercise", Jackson said.
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". In a remarkable show of transparency for an administration known for its secret-keeping, Jackson stood at the White House podium for an hour Tuesday answering questions about the President's health.
Jackson performed the yearly physical Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.
"He's fit for duty for the remainder of this term and another term if he is elected".
"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. the president's overall health is excellent", Navy Rear Admiral Dr Ronny Jackson told reporters.
Using a hashtag that plays off Trump's infamous "birther" movement-where he falsely claimed that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States-the internet let their theories fly.
Jackson responded to a question about doctors who have publicly given opinions about the President's health, without having actually examined him.
Trump said in the Reuters interview that he already gets exercise. "I don't know. It's just the way God made him", Jackson said.
