The ensuing storm of speculation about Trump's mental and physical fitness to be president prompted him to tweet that he was "a very stable genius", and to request the White House doctor to administer a cognitive test.
"I found no reason whatsoever to think that the President has any issues whatsoever with his thought process".
Presidential physician Ronny Jackson (appointed by then-President Obama in 2013) said that he wasn't planning on giving the new commander-in-chief any cognitive tests.
Physically, Trump is borderline obese (6 foot, 2 inches tall and 239 pounds), and his cholesterol levels are borderline high (143 LDL "bad" cholesterol), according to the vitals reported by Jackson. "Some people have great genetics".
Asked how a man whose diet consists of fast food and whose only known exercise is driving his golf cart on the green could nevertheless appear in such relatively good health, Jackson chalked it up to the president's "incredible genes".

In a press release issued by the White House, physician to the president Dr Ronny L. Jackson confirmed that Trump had passed the exam in flying colours, scoring 30 out of 30. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's bad cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.
Jackson said he will work with Trump to exercise more over the coming year, to eat better and lose between 10 and 15 pounds.
Washington had been abuzz in recent days with details from a tell-all-style book suggesting everyone in Trump's entourage questions his mental stability.
Trump takes a low dose of Crestor, a cholesterol medicine, to regulate his cholesterol. "And so I think, with all the other things in place - he doesn't have, really, a family history of premature cardiac disease, he doesn't smoke, he doesn't have diabetes - a lot of the traditional risk factors he doesn't have".
A large number of Democrats have said they will not vote for the legislation because it does not include protections for the more than 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
