Trump's health excellent: doctor

Trump Presidential Physical Results Trump says program to protect 'Dreamers' is 'probably dead'

But Trump's physical health should be a concern, too.

Do not expect US President Donald Trump to hit the gym, despite his doctor's orders. Dr. Jackson says he would not have recommended one since he sees the president daily and has no concerns about his cognitive ability.

After Donald Trump's doctor revealed on Tuesday that the president's "overall health is excellent", many refused to believe that the fast-food loving president was anything but on the cusp of a diabetic shock.

The program now protects roughly 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.

The results disclosed by the White House indicated a coronary calcium score of 133 - an increase from Trump's 2013 score of 98, and 2009 score of 34.

"But any benefit", Newsweek said, "assumes Trump will take it regularly, which ... only about 50 percent of people do after six months".

Referencing Trump's old calls for his predecessor Barack Obama to release his birth certificate, dubbed the birther movement, critics of the president came up with a new hashtag - the girther movement.

That said, he has made roughly 80 trips to golf courses during his first year in office, according to ABC News' count, though he is known to make regular use of a golf cart rather than walk the courses.

Trump, 71, is 6-foot-3 and his weight is 239 pounds, which is considered overweight by the medical community and just short of obese, Jackson said. Jackson said he could stand to lose 10-15 pounds.

As for his mental acuity, Mr Trump was quick to note his doctor's pronouncement that he aced a cognitive exam.

Cognitive testing is not part of the annual presidential physical requirements.

Trump was originally scheduled to attend a "Trump Victory Dinner" Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago, with proceeds going to a joint fundraising committee for his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee.

He has "always been more of a believer in diet because I'm strong, you know?"

But Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, said on Friday that following an initial telephone conversation with Trump about the deal, the senator had been "encouraged" by Trump's reaction and had expected further progress on the legislation at a White House meeting that day.

I remember a flustered White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer sticking his head into a Florida press room - during the visit of Chinese President Xi - telling reporters that upcoming remarks by White House officials would be on background (meaning: we can't say the names of the people who briefed us) and on camera, then changing his mind moments later, saying they wouldn't be, only to change his mind again.
