  • President Trump

"It is called genetics", Jackson said when asked how a borderline obese man with on cholesterol-lowering medication could be considered in excellent health.

Trump's physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - says the president achieved a flawless score on the test, which was included in last Friday's medical checkup.

Trump is also not alone in his lack of interest in exercise.

Jackson briefed reporters on the finding of Trump's first presidential physical conducted Friday.

Jackson says Trump is healthy and should remain so for the remainder of his presidency. "His denial of Trump's inflammatory statements last week are an embarrassment to the people he was elected to represent".

Trump is overweight for his height - he's 75 inches, or just under 6'3 - and a hair below the Center for Disease Control's obesity threshold with a body-mass index of 29.9. Out of adults over the age of 18, 51.7 per cent met the U.S. Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic activity, and 21.7 per cent of adults meet the aerobic and muscle strengthening activity guidelines, according to the CDC.

The president, like most Americans, would benefit from a "diet that is lower and fat and carbohydrates", along with more exercise, the doctor said.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson has served with Navy bomb disposal units and underwater salvage teams. Here's how the two presidents' health stack up.

Although it was not part of the official medical records that were released yesterday, after further questioning, Jackson also revealed that Trump underwent a coronary calcium CT scan as part of his routine physical exam. "Albert Pujols is 6′3" and 240 pounds.

The president takes 10 milligrams of Crestor, which helps lower LDL cholesterol, as well as 81 milligrams of aspirin to help curb the risk of heart attack. Jackson pronounced Obama to be in "excellent" - even "improved" - health.

President Donald Trump, his government shut down on the anniversary of his inauguration, on Saturday acknowledged the thousands taking part in the Women's March with a tweet seemingly "mansplaining" the historic occasion.

Trump scored a ideal 30/30 on the test, which Jackson said is longer and more rigorous than other cognitive exams.

"He's probably been that way his whole life", Jackson said.

However, Mr Trump requested the assessment.

And according to the State Department, several countries have summoned USA diplomats to the respective nations they reside in to answer for Trump's comment, with more expected this week.

Trump is the nation's oldest president and there here has been ongoing speculation as to whether the 71-year-old is mentally fit to be president due to his sometimes erratic behavior - concerns that were amplified after the publication of the explosive book Fire and Fury, which stated that the president's team constantly anxious about his mental stability.
