But in many areas, Trump exceeded or was right at the average for men of his age, and Jackson, during a Tuesday briefing, praised the president repeatedly as being in "excellent" health. He examined the Mr. Trump for three hours last Friday, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, marking his first medical check-up since becoming president. Trump also plays frequent rounds of golf, which Jackson said contains a "certain amount" of exercise.

He scored a 30/30 on the test, Jackson said, and there was 'no indication that he has cognitive issues'.

White House doctor Ronny Jackson spoke to reporters for almost an hour today answering anything and everything related to the results of the President's 2018 physical he took this past Friday.

WASHINGTON ― A Navy rear admiral who serves as President Donald Trump's personal physician vouched on Tuesday for his mental fitness, explaining that he gave Trump a dementia screening exam at the president's request, and that Trump aced it.

"It's called genetics", Jackson said. Jackson said that he has a goal for the president of losing 10-15 pounds through a regimen of diet and exercise, telling reporters, "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both". Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry". 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.

In fairness, those athletes have much more weight in sculpted muscle than Trump, whose body mass is distributed just a bit differently (also in fairness: this out-of-shape author is no one to talk).

It was the third sentence in the summary, after Jackson wrote that Trump is in "excellent" health and that his cardiac performance "was very good". Jackson said he'd ruled out a list of possible causes, and that dry mouth caused by the over-the-counter decongestant Sudafed was likely to blame.

As far as the President's mental health. "I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200".

Trump's cholesterol reading from Friday's exam was borderline high even though he takes a low dose of the statin drug Crestor.

Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, although they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors.
